Our favourite day is here | Happy Yorkshire Day

It’s officially Yorkshire Day! We love Yorkshire Day here at Yorkshire Dama Cheese, celebrating the county from which our small business began and from where our produce comes from to create our delicious award-winning products.

What is Yorkshire Day?

Yorkshire Day is the yearly celebration of the historic country of Yorkshire, England. Usually falling on the 1st of August, Yorkshire Day arose initially in Beverly as a protest movement against the local government reorganisation act of 1974 and the celebration of the emancipation of slaves in 1834. 

The usual tradition of Yorkshire Day is for local citizens to recite the Yorkshire declaration of integrity, to declare the boundaries of which countries and cities of Yorkshire exist and prosper. The declaration of integrity is recited to solidify the ties of the Yorkshire folk to their compatriots, to maintain tradition and never allow anyone, or anything, to change that.
