We’re OPEN – every day!

Shop: 10am to 5pm

Visitor Centre: 1pm to 3pm – by appointment only

Delighted to have reopened our Shop and cheese tasting bars (safely) again, having been closed for 60 days. Our new design shop and improved one-way layout is working well. Face coverings required please, for your own safety and that of our staff.

We reopened our Visitor Centre on Monday, August 10th, 2020. These days it’s by appointment only, so we ask that you call our office between 9am & 5pm, Monday to Friday to book your viewing. There’s a lot happening in the dairy between 1 and 3pm where you can watch our cheesemakers ‘LIVE’. We’ll run a film of the process from start to finish too so by the end you’ll know how to make cheese! Numbers are restricted and we are very busy – so do ring as soon as possibly to secure your visit.

Our online shop is still available of course and has been our saviour during lockdown; we can’t thank our loyal customers enough for this.

 NEW from September 2020:

Free P&P if you spend £45 (for delivery within mainland UK)

Place your Christmas orders now, & select your deferred delivery date to make the most of it!

HOW DO WE MAKE
OUR CHEESE?

There is no secret to the fact that all cheese is made in a similar way. It’s a process that transforms milk into curds and whey. The whey is drained and the curd remains; this curd is already ‘fresh’ cheese! It can then be strained, pressed, salted or brine washed.
