The Hartington Creamery
Cheese and Stilton making have been synonymous with the village of Hartington since the late 1800s. Since the closure of the cheese factory in summer 2009, 150 year history of Stilton Cheese at the site and cheese making in Derbyshire came to an end.
Funding provided support to start a new business producing cheese following renovation of a redundant farm building at Pike Hall in the Parish of Hartington Nether Quarter.
The grant provided funds to purchase cheese making equipment and costs associated with fitting out the interior of the building to meet food hygiene standards has been used to begin cheese production.
Full-time jobs have been created and training courses are in development to be delivered on site.
Leader grant £78,909.58.
