Run by Carolyn and Leonie Fairbairn, Thornby Moor Dairy is located at the heart of the Solway Plain, looking out over the Northern Fells of the Lake District. The dairy is housed within the outbuildings of the old Crofton Hall Estate near Thursby, eight miles west of Carlisle.
The visit will commence at 1.30pm with a welcome address by CLA Member Michael Cowen. Following on from this we will be treated to a tour of the dairy, and an opportunity to try Thornby Moor Dairy produce. The afternoon will conclude with a lovely homemade tea. The on site shop will be open should you wish to purchase any of their hand made cheese following the visit.
Crofton Hall is also home to several other specialist outlets, including a chocolatier and specialist glass maker, these will all be open during our visit.
Places are limited and so we do advise you to book in plenty of time.
We look forward to welcoming you on the 16th May.
