HOME FARM EXPERIENCE

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

9.30am Meet at Home Farm, in plenty of time for a 10am start. 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 featuring our cheese.

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

Tickets £35.
