High Weald Dairy
In the late 1980s Mark and his parents Guy and Audrey, established a flock of 150 British Friesland sheep for milking at their small family farm in Duddleswell. The idea was to sell the milk to a local cheesemaker but, with each sheep producing up to three litres of rich milk every day, they were soon faced with a surplus. As a result, they began to bottle the fresh sheep milk and sell it to local health food shops where it was in high demand as a delicious and nutritious alternative for people with an intolerance to cow milk (find out more on our Nutritional Benefit page). Sheep milk yogurt followed next, and then a selection of cheeses, including 100% sheep milk Halloumi originally supplied to the North London Cypriot community, Medita a version of Greek feta cheese, then the hard, mature Duddleswell and Sussex Slipcote soft cheeses.
As the cheese sales grew, so did the number of sheep in the flock, although there was a limit to how many could be kept on the small family farm. Soon other small dairy sheep farms began supplying them with sheep milk, so that they could sell cheese to retailers throughout the year. The range of organic cow milk cheeses developed gradually, initially as hard cheeses, but more recently as semi soft continental style cheeses.
