All of this gives reassurance to people who buy and eat our cheese that the cows who produce the main part, the milk, are living happy, healthy lives here on dairy farm.
It's time to start thinking about the Christmas Cheeseboard - why not try Kentish Cheese this year?
We have a selection of sizes of our Kentish Blue and Kentish Blue mature including whole cheeses (approx 2.6kg) and halves (approx 1.2-1.3kg), perfect for larger gatherings, as well as the chunks shown in the Shop section - just email for details.
We join up with 2 other Kentish cheesemakers to offer a delicious selection in our Kentish Cheeseboard and Kentish Two boxes.
Please put 'Christmas del' in the NOTES BOX and your cheesebox will arrive 19/20th Dec. All cheese will have a use by date of after 5.1.17.
For any other preferred delivery dates, please put in the NOTES BOX and we will do our best!
LAST ORDER DATE ONLINE is Mon 4th DEC but Mature often sells out so please order as early as possible. After that please email or ring to check availability.

We're pleased to be joining up with fellow Kentish producers Biddenden Vineyards and Cheesemakers of Canterbury to host an evening of local cheese and wine tasting at this years Broadstairs Food Festival.

What a great way to round off a days' visit to the food festival!

A great article in The Times on Saturday 5.3.16 describing our son Frank's reasons for venturing into the milk bottling business when dairy farms are in decline.
