David and Jo’s families have been farming in the area for generations and have been invaluable in helping get the cheese business off the ground! The farm is set in rolling Leicestershire countryside and the dairy enterprise is run by David with help from Roger, who does most of the milking and Billy who is in charge of feeding the cows (William and Annie also have a big part to play in seeing that everything runs smoothly!). David tries to grow as much of the feed on the farm as possible and buffer feeds the cows all year round to help produce milk as consistent as possible for the cheese making. Calving takes place all year round for the same reason. The farm is registered under the countryside stewardship scheme and all efforts are made in every respect with regard to conservation. The cows are all pedigree and all have names such as Greeta and Hyacinth and the herd was in the semi final of the national herds Gold Cup Award.
