About the producer
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 cows’ milk.
Sheep milk yogurt followed next, and then a selection of cheeses, including 100% sheep milk Halloumi, Medita – a version of Greek feta cheese, and a fresh Ricotta cheese.
High Weald Dairy currently make 15 different cheeses with the entire process for each one taking place on the farm. It’s fair to say that cheese is a bit of an obsession for Mark and his sister Sarah- who even has a cheese named after her!
