Rainton farm was a traditional maker of farm house cheese. The knowhow had been lost. This spring a skilled cheese maker with 25 years of experience was employed to develop traditional cheese making at Rainton which had begun again few years earlier on an experimental basis. On 20 August three young people interviewed the cheesemaker. They Returned to the farm on 1 September to see cheese being made and to interview the cheese maker in more detail about the process. They also interviewed retired farmer James Finlay to ask about farming and cheese making in his youth.
