Summer on The Farm!

The beautiful British summer is here, with longer days, blue skies and a warmer breeze it’s a delight to live in the south-English countryside during this radiant season.

Spring and Summer are the perfect periods for producing most cheeses because the animals have been grazing on spring pastures including rich grasses, flowers, clover and herbs just as nature intended! We have 3,000 acres of rich and lush pasture in order to cater for an impressive 2,000 well-loved Holstein Friesian cows – who in turn produce a large amount of creamy milk required for crafting cheddar and giving it that smooth taste because of the endless fields of gorgeous green countryside. Find out more about the daily life on the farm by clicking here.


Summer really is an important time to us on the farm when making our loving crafted cheddar cheese, but the farm is also home to a range of wildlife and nature. Here is your summer sneak peek into our tranquil summer days…

The cows graze in the summer sunshine blissfully enjoying their rich and luscious grass.
Whilst back in the garden we are greeted by geese strolling around and our beautiful farm dog is taking a laze in the shade.

Alfresco dining is part of the beauty in the summer, nothing feels more natural than enjoying tasty food in the great outdoors. Here on the farm, we enjoy setting our table with freshly cut flowers whilst we prepare some of our favourite summer dishes.


One tasty treat we always enjoy on the farm is delicious Crispy Potato Skins bursting with Cheddar, Bacon and Sour Cream! This recipe is super-easy and only takes 20mins, meaning you don’t have to give up too much of your time in the sunshine!

We hope you enjoyed seeing the wildlife and fresh air environment that our cows are brought up in. It’s summer when our cheddar cheeses truly embody the rich, creamy quality as nature intended! To find out more about how are cheese are loving crafted click here.
