HOME FARM EXPERIENCE

There’s a lot to pack into a day at Home Farm…

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

  • 11.30am Tuck into 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.
