We have been amazed at the amount of online orders coming through during this lockdown period! Thank you to all of our customers - old and new.
We have been doing free national delivery for 6 weeks and we hope that has given people a chance to taste our cheeses and see what we have to offer.
But all special offers have an end, and we now reluctantly have put a packing and delivery amount of £5 back on for deliveries outside of about 6 miles from our farm - see map above. This goes part way towards the overnight courier service we use and will allow us to continue sending out our cheeses to your door.
There is still FREE delivery to all of our surrounding villages, usually on a Friday.
For orders being couriered - orders will be dispatched within 1 week, usually just day or so, and we send out Mon-Wed for delivery within 48 hours. We send an email to let you know when to expect your cheese.
Thank you to all of our customers and we hope to see you again at shows and events soon.
We were all delighted that Frank's cheese KINGCOTT BLUE was awarded winner of 2 prizes at this year's Taste of Kent Awards.

Find out about Kent's Cheese and Dairy sector in this jam packed guide to our part of the food industry.
Produced by KENT FOOD TRAILS
as the latest in their series of downloadable information guides, it has lots of great info about dairy farming, cheese and other locally produced dairy products.
Postage for our online cheese boxes is now just £5 per delivery.
Collection from our farm on our designated Christmas collection morning - Sat 15th Dec 9am - 12pm - is of course, free!
All of the milk produced by our gorgeous cows has been RED TRACTOR ASSURED since the scheme was introduced, but we are now assured under the FREE RANGE DAIRY PASTURE PROMISE scheme too.
So, as well as our farm going beyond the standards required by all of the UK dairies in terms of things such as cow comfort and welfare & antibiotic and medicine use to ensure our milk is Red Tractor Assured, we can also meet the grazing requirements of the Free Range Dairy Pasture Promise scheme.
We promise to allow all of our milking girls free access to our fields day and night for at least 6 months a year, generally longer if the weather is favourable in spring or autumn.
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.
