The Flying Picnic
Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses made an appearance on the ITV Anglia programme which follows the progress of Annabel Croft as she tries to recreate Mrs Beeton's 1861 picnic for forty people - which she decided should consist of 35 different dishes. An important ingredient of this picnic is cheese and she turned to Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses to provide it.
