Cheese making production re-started in the Parish of Hartington in October 2012, after the closure of Dove Dairy in 2009.
A new company called the Hartington Creamery was formed and a small scale cheese factory was developed just outside the village of Hartington.
The first products produced at the creamery were Peakland Blue and Peakland White which are unique to Hartington Creamery. These have been supplemented in 2014 with the return of Stilton manufacture with the first blue versions made in Derbyshire for 5 years in July 2014.
