Richard Mawson's Dairy in Seascale is one of the local producers Cumbria Tourism is highlighting as an example of what the area does well.
A third generation farmer, Richard began making his own cheeses, milk, smoothies and ice cream in 2006.
His family run ice cream parlour and cafe now attracts visitors to the West coast. Cumbria Tourism are hoping to bring other local brewers, bakers, and meat farmers to create a food trail throughout the west of the county to bring people into less celebrated parts of the Lake District
