Cheesemaking

Singletons & Co. to team up with local milkman

Longridge-based Singletons & Co., the family-owned cheesemaker which can trace its cheese handcrafting roots in Lancashire back to 1745, is partnering with local milkman, Mick Adair to bring its cheeses to the homes of residents in Longridge and Grimsargh.

With our nation in lockdown, and supermarkets regularly emptied of essentials, this new partnership will see nine of Singletons & Co.‘s cheeses available for delivery to Mick’s customers along with their usual milk order.

Henry Openshaw, head of sales at Singletons & Co. said: “Cheese is an essential part of the diet – rich in calcium and protein, and versatile in terms of use. Historically we’ve supplied wholesalers, major retailers and manufacturing customers rather than direct to customers, so this is an exciting move for us.

“We’re grateful to Mick for his help in ensuring that our cheeses can be delivered to people who may be self isolating or unable to get to shops, meaning that they have easy access to a food staple that will hopefully make things a little easier.”

The deliveries are due to start Monday April 6th and will include a selection of Singletons & Co.‘s cheddars, Lancashire cheeses, Double Gloucester, Red Leicester, Wensleydale & Cranberry, and the cheesemaker’s sheep’s milk cheese, Parlick.

Mick Adair, milkman, said: “I’ve lived in this area all my life and have operated the milk round for 20 years, so see first-hand how much social distancing is affecting some people. By working with Singletons & Co. I can deliver another essential product to my customers and hopefully help to reduce the need to head out to the shops.”
