Manor Farm Dairy
Peter and Cheryl Holmes have been producing delicious farmhouse yogurts on their dairy farm in the picturesque Wreake Valley for more than 30 years.
In the last few years they have won a glut of awards for their yogurt including Best Product at the Nantwich International Cheese Awards, two Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards and a Q Guild trophy in the Local Foods category. When you taste it you’ll understand why – Manor Farm yoghurt is exceptional. Once tried, forever remembered.
The secret is the fat- and protein-rich milk produced by Manor Farm’s 250-strong herd of pedigree Friesians. “I was brought up on this farm and I saw my father run it before me,” says Peter. “Up until he and my mother both passed away recently, they still lived in the big farmhouse and were actively involved with the farm. Dairy farmers are just one on their own – we are all passionate about our cows. We have four generations of the same Friesian family on this farm, still producing high quality milk.”
The yogurt production at Manor Farm takes place three days a week – but deliveries are every day. Peter and Cheryl supply more than 50 farm shops, delis, village stores and butchers around Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, as well as schools, universities, health farms and local branches of Waitrose.
