Spend a year at Westcombe Dairy following their move towards a pasture fed system in search of a more delicious cheese!
4 The Westcombe Project September 2021
I'm out of the fields and into the dairy as I chat to Rob Howard, Head Cheesemaker at Westcombe Dairy. We talk Historical Makes, Culture and Rob's Philosophy of cheesemaking.
We also hear from some owls and a Cockerel.
3 The Westcombe Project - August
I'm back down at Westcombe and we're starting to take those first steps towards milk. What really goes into making "quality" milk?
2 The Westcombe Project - July 2021
I'm back down at Westcombe Dairy in Somerset and out on the early morning rounds with Richard Calver.
This is an episode about man management, the challenges of old versus new and how to persuade a diverse range of people along the same path, to the same goal.
1 The Westcombe Project - June 2021
It's high summer as I visit Westcombe Dairy for the very first time. I talk to to father and son, Tom and Richard Calver and spend time in the meadows with Nick Millard. We discuss the benefits of a pasture led system of dairying and how it may lead to a more delicious cheese.
This is part one of a 12 part series following the seasons on one farm with one group of people. If you love cheese and are fascinated by farming then this is the podcast for you!
