Yester Farm Dairies is run by husband and wife team Simon and Jackie McCreery, operating alongside the family farm at Yester Mains. Once milking is finished on the farm the milk can be piped straight from the milking parlour to our modern pasteurisation plant and cheese room on-site where we produce an artisan range of soft cheeses, cottage cheese, yogurts, creme fraiche, soured cream and fiore di latte mozzarella.
The freshness of our milk makes really superior products. We hand-make everything on the family farm ensuring the freshest possible product for our customers, keeping food miles low and offering full traceability.
We can supply to foodservice and wholesale customers UK-wide as well as directly to outlets throughout Scotland.
Our cows are very important to us so we look after them well. All our cows enjoy time out at grass on the lush East Lothian pastures but they are also fed a nutritionally balanced diet which includes grass or silage (mowed grass), wheat and barley all harvested from our farm. The attention to our cows' nutrition together with the natural pasteurisation process leads to a top quality, really fresh, tasty product. “From farm to fridge” is not just a strapline for us, it is an important part of our ethos and identity.
We operate according to high environmental health standards and are an approved food business establishment licensed to process and sell soft cheeses and cultured creams. We are also accredited members of the SALSA Scheme (Safe and Local Supplier Approval).
