Christmas Cheer for Cheese-Maker
- Written by Lucy Francis , Brand Manager
Our Dairy Technologist Leigh Vinnell, a 5th generation Vinnell family member to work for Wyke Farms, has been awarded ‘Academic Student of the Year’ at Reaseheath College where he’s studying for a sandwich degree in Dairy Technology.
Nine of the Vinnell family have worked for our company over the last 30 years either crafting our award-winning Cheddar or working on our family-owned farms. We are very proud of his achievement, it’s a credit to his family and has brought Christmas cheer to the whole team! Well done Leigh!
