Christmas Collection Afternoon Fri 16.12.16

For 1 day only (well afternoon!) we will be open for cheese collections here at our farm.

Come along on Friday 16th Dec  3-7pm, to collect any pre-ordered Kentish Blue cheese or cheese box selections - the Kentish Cheeseboard is always popular.

Please order via the online shop / by email to hello@kingcottdairy.co.uk  / at any of our events.

Last order date is Wed 14th Dec, but please make it as early as possible as some cheeses (especially Kentish Blue Mature) will usually sell out.

Please note that we do not have a shop, as we are a working dairy farm, and this afternoon is for collections only as we are making cheese, delivering milk and cheese, milking cows etc too!

Christmas Cheese!

It's time to start thinking about the Christmas Cheeseboard - why not try Kentish Cheese this year?

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 20/21st 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 is WED 14th DEC but Mature often sells out so please order as early as possible.

The next generation...

A big welcome to Elizabeth, the first of our Danish Red heifers born here last week. 
She is absolutely delightful and will become part of our milking herd in a few years time.

The Vikings have arrived....

The new additions to our milking herd have come direct from Denmark, and are already improving the quality and taste of our milk.
The Danish Red cows have the appearance of a large sturdy Ayrshire dairy cow, but with the added bonus of better milk - great for our cheese and great for our milk!
We're looking forward to the first of their calves due this month - lots of heifers please!
