To deter the birds from stealing all the yummy food from our cows we use Starling scarers and fly hawks to scare them away. It is only a temporary cure but it does seem to work, for a while at least.
Our extra mature black farmhouse cheddar has just won Silver at the World Cheese Awards (we also won two bronzes!).
Meet the team
John Higdon - Head of Dairy Operations
John is our Head of Dairy Operations, responsible for making cheese and generally keeping the dairy and staff organised. Having worked with us for what he decribes as “ten backbreaking years”, John says what he loves most about his job is making cheese using the traditional methods. When he’s finished work for the day John can be found motorbiking, enjoying time by the sea with his family or drinking lager! His favourite Brue product is our Vintage Cheddar.
