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.

Please note that from Saturday 6th April, we will be opening on Saturdays from 9am - 1pm. This will replace our Sat pm opening hours. If you wish to visit outside farm shop hours please contact us.

OPEN FARM SUNDAY
Open Farm Sunday is back on Sunday 9th June this year- we will have tractor-trailer rides, farm tours, machinery display, Voluntary milking system, farm shop and cheese tasting, farm walks and childrens’ trail, hog roast, bbq, homemade cakes and much more!! Open 10am to 4pm, entry free. Sadly we cannot allow dogs, sorry.
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. The milk is priced at £1 per litre, the machine takes 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2 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, reuse 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- 2019 is the year of the Islands. So far, we have welcomed Sark, Madeira, Mauritius and Antigua. 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.
Hope to see you soon!
Jason and Katharine

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.
