SHEEPtember -Cheese Pairings & Dairy-sheep Demonstrations

Share

We will be demonstrating sheep milking and cheese making techniques, and talking about their journey into the world of dairy-sheep farming and cheese making, our principles of small-scale, ethical and sustainable production, and our plans for the future.

Alongside this, a group of fantastic new and local small businesses will present activities including working sheepdog demonstrations, cheese and beer pairings, an ice-cream stall, and tours of nearby Long Churn cave, home of the famous ‘cheese-press’ formation.
