A treasured award.......

Award presented by HRH The Prince of Wales

This photo is one we really cherish as we were the first cheesemakers to be presented by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2001 with the James Aldridge Memorial Trophy for the best British raw milk cheese(Golden Cross) as judged by the Specialist Cheesemakers Association

James was both a mentor and friend who helped us a lot and gave us the recipe for Flower Marie as well as getting our cheeses known in the early years.
