The Crickmore family have been farming the land at Fen Farm for three generations! Their passion and commitment to delivering the best food in the world, straight from nature to your plate, shines through in the quality of their delicious products.
You may have spotted Baron Bigod and other Fen Farm Dairy products on our website, but to truly to appreciate the final product, it’s important to understand where they all come from…
From Waverney River Valley to Foulgers Dairy!
Fen Farm Dairy’s Montbeliarde cows graze the beautiful marshlands of the Waverney River Valley in Suffolk and the Crickmore family carefully make their delicious raw milk into the finest artisan cheese and raw cultured butter, right there on the farm.
The Famous Baron Bigod
If you’re local to Suffolk, you may know all about this creamy, white bloomy-rind cheese handmade on Fen Farm by Jonny and the team, from their own raw Montbeliarde cow’s milk.
It has a smooth silky texture and a brilliant golden curd, with a long-lasting warm earth, farmyard and mushroom favours.
Did you know… Baron Bigod is the only traditional raw milk Brie-de-Meaux style cheese produced in the UK!
Even the French would be jealous of Baron Bigod, as the cheese is one of only a handful of its type in the world to be made by the farmer on the farm and can genuinely be called a true farmhouse Brie!
Delicious Bungay Raw Cultured Butter
Fen Farm Dairy’s Bungay Raw Butter is the UK’s only raw farmhouse butter produced by using a lactic culture! It’s made by hand on the farm in a traditional way, by souring the cream using a cocktail of lactic bacteria, before churning and hand-paddling with traditional scotch ‘butter hands’ made from wood.
It is the closest thing to the original Suffolk butter! They use a milk warm from milking and their grass-fed cows are an ancient breed, Montbeliarde, hand-picked by Jonny from small farms in the Jura region of France. They only give a small amount of milk but it is rich and high in protein, producing beautifully creamy and complex flavours.
A true farmhouse butter.
