At Park Farm, the Padfield family have been milking their herd of cows for three generations. A few years ago they thought they would try making cheese and so production started in the same buildings in which the current generation's grandmother made her cheddar. The small herd of Holstein Friesian cows are just a few hundred yards away.
Park Farm is uses entirely organic process and are registered with the Organic Farmers and Grower. They take a very traditional approach to how they raise and graze their cows which continues into the making of their artisan cheese which are all handmade.
