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.
OPEN FARM SUNDAY
Preparations are underway for this year’s Open Farm Sunday on 10th June. We will again be opening the farm gates from 10am to 4pm for this fun-filled day. We will have:-
Farm walks and tours
Childrens’ activity barn
Meet the cows, lambs, goats and pigs
Farm Shop and cheese tasting
Robotic milking parlour
Milk vending machine
Hog roast and BBQ
Tea, coffee, pancakes, homemade cakes, ice-cream
And lots more......!
Entry is free. We are sorry but we cannot welcome dogs to the farm because of the livestock. We also do not have any suitable disabled parking but we can offer disabled access/drop-off and will help as much as we can.
We will have fresh beef and pork in the farm shop this weekend from 4pm-6pm Friday and 3-5pm Saturday.
Voluntary Milking System
In June, 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.
