Family-run farm Carron Lodge have acquired the premises of insolvent cheese maker Singletons in Longridge, as well as the majority of its brands, including  ‘Grandma Singletons’.
Singletons Dairy was founded in 1934 by Dullia and Robert Singleton, whose family has been making cheese since the 18th century. The company had been handcrafting award winning cheeses in the UK for more than 80 years, until they went into admistration in August this year
Following the news that Singletons were entering administration, Carron Lodge say they “had no choice but to act.” Before marriage, Grandma Singleton, Dullia, was from the Rhodes family and used to make cheese for them from a young age. These recipes were handed down through generations to allow Adrian and Annette Rhodes to start making cheese in 1988, and start Carron Lodge.
