Welcome to Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses
Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses is a family-run business established in July 2004 by Jason and Katharine Salisbury.
From the milk of our own herd of pedigree Guernseys, we produce fine hand-made cheeses by traditional methods. We also make other dairy products and rear our own beef and pork.
CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS
The farm shop is now open everyday 10-4 until and including Sun 23rd December. We will then be closed until Saturday 29th December, normal hours thereafter.
We have gammons, bacon, beef, cheese and lots of other treats.
SNAPE CHRISTMAS MARKET
We will be at Snape Maltings for a very festive Christmas market from 9.30 to 1.30 on Saturday 22nd December. Lots of local produce, well worth a visit!
Voluntary Milking System
In June 2017, we installed a state-of-the-art robotic milking system. This allows the cows the freedom to be milked when they wish, providing a higher welfare system and freeing us up to concentrate more on their daily needs. Customers can visit the farm and watch the robot at work when purchasing milk.
The Milk vending machine is open 7 days a week, from 7am to 9pm- PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE HOURS HAVE CHANGED SLIGHTLY. The milk is priced at £1 per litre, the machine takes 50p and £1 coins. Free plastic bottles are provided. Cheeses, free-range eggs and glass milk bottles are also available from a second vending machine, which accepts notes and gives change. We are very excited to be have this facility to enable customers to help themselves to milk, recycle glass bottles and reduce plastic bottle wastage. We would like to thank the many customers who have already been to use the vending machine for their support.
Every year we have a theme for naming our heifer calves- 2018 is the year of the drink. So far, we have welcomed Peroni, Razelberry, Daiquiri, Limoncello. We hope they will be joined by more shortly!
We are now selling corn-fed, free-range chickens from the local Hog and Hen Farm Shop. We also have a regular supply of their delicious free-range eggs.

We have just won another award! The BALE (Best Alternative Land Enterprise) award run by the Suffolk Agricultural Association. We received the Green Award. The judges were very impressed by our holistic approach, feeding whey to the pigs, rearing our bull calves for beef and growing as much of our own cow feed as possible.
