Farewell to Mandy of Swaledale Cheese

Initial inquiries indicate Mandy Reed died after collapsing near her home in North YorkshireAs many of you may have heard on the cheese grapevine or read in the press, Mandy Reed at Swaledale Cheese died.

I went to the funeral yesterday.  It was a beautiful service, very dignified with pieces of music, chosen by Mandy’s family that I feel sure Mandy would have loved.  At one point, Mandy’s brother described her laugh as a cross between a goat and a witch which raised a smile in an otherwise sombre celebration of  Mandy’s life cut far too short.

All our thoughts are with Lou and Sam, Mandy’s children who will continue to run the business.
