January 2005


As can be seen in the pictures along side, the present ripening room is full to the brim with maturing cheeses. A second room is being built as I write this, to double our capacity. The two young ladies that you see turning cheeses are both from the Southampton General Hospital where they work for Wessex Microbiology Services. As part of their training they have to come and learn about the production end of cheese making as well as knowing the microbiology.
