Frome, Somerset - 116 miles from the Farm Direct Depot

 

Ivy House Organic Dairy Farm is a family run business, they set up their dairy in the early 1980s. Choosing to shun high­ intensity methods in favour of sustainable systems, they run a herd of 160 Jersey cows that they milk only once a day. The cows eat the clover that grows in abundance on the farm. ‘It’s how everyone used to farm sixty years ago,’ says Geoff.

 

When they first made the transition to organic in 1998, Geoff would rise at 5am to milk the herd, often working a twenty­ hour day with help from Kim and their three children. Sixteen years on, Ivy House Farm supplies organic dairy products to over 150 farm shops and cafés. Now Geoff is able to relax a little, as his son Darren has taken over the milking. The farm also employs people from the local village of Beckingham – up to ten on a good day.

 

Ivy House’s products are all organic, unhomogenised, pasteurised and produced to order from the morning’s milking. Their clotted cream butter is a favourite with the punters, and to Kim and Geoff there is no better accolade than the appreciation of returning customers. ‘Bless them all,’ they say.

Geoff likes nothing better on a frosty morning than a steaming bowl of porridge with thick Jersey cream from his own cows.

Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire - 24miles from the Farm Direct Depot



Tim's Dairy was founded 60 years ago in 1949 and has continued to be a family business run with family values. The team there really do love making yoghurt and believe in the many health benefits of eating it. All the yoghurt are fresh and live, made from using only natural ingredients such as fresh cream and milk, plus natural fruit compotes. You certainly will not find any artificial colours, additives or preservatives added to these wonderful yoghurt. You will, however, find fun facts on the packaging so make sure you read inside and outside the pots before throwing them away!




Oxford - 60 miles from the Farm Direct Depot

When Robert Pouget and Gerry Stevens opened their first cheese shop in Oxfords covered market in 1983 they had no idea the fame it would bring them (well in Oxford anyway). The Cheese shop was an instant hit as at the time there were very few specialist cheese shops in Oxford, and it proved to be a welcome novelty. In 1995 Robert Pouget began production of Oxford Blue a cheese in the tradition of Stilton (it was produced in a Stilton dairy ) but with a creamier consistency especially when the cheese was allowed to mature. Oxford Blue, College White and Isis have become some of the most popular cheeses in England and are widely available on sale at good independent food retailers.



Alford, Lincolnshire - 138 miles from the Farm Direct Depot

Simon and Tim Jones, produce award-winning handmade Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese on their dairy farm situated on the edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds. The use of freshly produced unpasteurised milk from their own dairy herd which graze on the rolling hills of the farm is the basis for the distinctive characteristics of their cheese.This is, of course in conjunction with the care and attention taken during the making of each individual batch of hand-made cheese. To ensure their milk is of the highest quality, their ‘girls’ are treated like royalty. They've even got their own happy cow brushes so they can give themselves a really good scratch!
