Local dairy delivery service The Scampston Dairy is celebrating 2 years in business this month.
Set up during the first lockdown, owner James and Michelle Ridsdale have worked hard to build their business in Ryedale. James said: “We set up The Scampston Dairy to help reduce the amount of single-use plastics used and provide a service for villages without a milkman. We have customers across Ryedale and sell everything from milk (obviously) to yogurt, butter, eggs, soft cheeses and even dairy alternatives like oat milk.”
We’re all having to be more conscious of the amount of plastic waste we produce and The Scampston Dairy provides a traditional alternative to purchasing milk in plastic bottles. James said: “We love the fact that our provision helps people to be involved in the recycle and re-use process, and customers tell us how much they prefer the taste compared to supermarket bought milk. It is very rewarding to know that you are making a difference to people’s lives and a positive contribution to the community. I am often referred to as the ‘Dairy Fairy’ because I try my very best to make deliveries as quiet as possible!”
James says he’d like to thank all of their customers over the last 2 years for their support: “We are very grateful for all the positive messages and are working on expanding both our products and our round, while continuing to offer the same excellent personal service.”
