Event description

Description

See the art of making great cheese. With a unique behind the scenes experience, we'll show you from the ground up how we craft world-class cheese.

There's a lot to pack in to a day in the life of Home Farm...

From 9.30am Meet at our farm kitchen, Cakedoodledo, in plenty of time for a 10am start.

10am Indulge in coffee and cake and hear the intriguing history of the Quicke family.

10.30am Take a tour of our dairy, watch our cheese-makers expertly craft each truckle by hand.

11.00am Whizz around our cheese stores and see how we age our clothbound cheddar, learn about our unique mould garden and the traditional skill of grading cheese.

11.30am Tuck in to a tutored tasting where you'll enjoy the complexity and diversity of the Quicke's range.

12pm Take a guided tour of our farm. We'll explain the unique macrobiotics of our soils and grasses, and why looking after our countryside is so important - and if you're lucky, you'll meet our world famous Quicke's cows.

1pm After all that exploring and adventuring you'll be ready for lunch. We'll be serving up a seasonal two course feast at Cakeadoodledo.

From 2pm collect your Quicke's goody bag from our farm shop.

Important information to read before booking:

Home Farm is a working farm so there are a few things we’d like to remind you of before you book.

  • The route around the farm is likely to be muddy and uneven, so please bring appropriate footwear such as wellies or walking boots.
  • Be prepared for a walk of up to an hour, depending where the cows are grazing that day.
  • With our changeable British weather, it’s also sensible to bring waterproofs and extra layers.
  • Please note that the cheese stores stay cool even in the summer, so you might want an extra layer in there too.
  • Unfortunately, dogs are not invited on the tour.
  • Children over the age of 12 are welcome (with tickets), but please bear in mind that they need to be able to complete the farm walk.
  • The route is not suitable for wheelchairs.
  • When entering the dairy you'll be asked to remove all jewellery (plain wedding bands are permitted), so it's a good idea to do this before hand for safekeeping.
  • We reserve the right to cancel the event at any point, in which case refunds will be given.
