Cheese: Cheese making was once carried out in nearly all country farmhouses.

The dairy and cheese making equipment pictured, was to be found in Wensleydale. The making of cheese from milk has gone through a transition over the centuries from being a kitchen industry of the self-sufficient, to a farmhouse-centred enterprise, and finally, in today's world, a predominantly factory-based production line. Small scale cheese making survives on some farms as the product is much in demand.
