And the Robots are live…

So, it’s been just a little crazy at the farm this week  because on Tuesday the robots finally went live.  It’s strange when there has been such a huge build up to a massive change like this, it’s like you mentally prepare yourself for the absolute worse case scenario, question your every decision, dream bad dreams, lose sleep, turn grey over the idea that things could go catastrophically wrong and then when D-day arrives it’s surreal.  The day passes without a hitch (well nothing to...

Out with the old and in with the new

                  Exciting times here at Moorhayes Farm. Yesterday morning we took delivery of our brand new sparkling Milking Robots. Don’t you just love new things? We’ve been preparing for their arrival for a while now, demolishing buildings and clearing out old in preparation for new. I have to say it’s been great fun, such a buzz of activity, and we really are blessed to have such great workmen in and around our local area, always the...

30th March 2014 – British Summertime Begins

  I know, I know, we’ve been very quiet on the blog front over here at Moorhayes Farm.  Sorry about that folks, we promise to talk to you a lot more in the coming months. Truth it’s been a long long dreary winter hasn’t it?  Luckily we in South Somerset have managed to escape the worst of the weather but our hearts go out to our colleagues over on the levels who will be suffering the hangover for months to come yet.  We’d like to thank all our lovely customers and suppliers who have sent us...

Summer Roundup

Oh boy oh boy.  Summer in the cheese making business really is a whirlwind.  There are cheese shows and cheese competitions, cheese exhibitions, cheese weeks, it’s never ending.  We at Keens have been exhibiting and tasting, selling and showing, competing and winning (big!) every weekend since July.  To be honest a couple of us are still exhibiting over in Bra, Italy with the lovely folks over at Slow Food so for James and George the show still goes on, however I thought it about time I blogged a little blog...

It’s time for the cheese show – Part 2

So, you’d like some advice about entering your cheese into show?  No problem at all.  We may be old hat at this show business but we also know that not everybody reading this blog are fifth generation cheese makers.  Some of you may be newcomers to the business, if that’s you welcome on board the dairy train and read on to find out a little more about entering your produce into show. While Richard Green of Brue-Valley-Cheddar was with us grading cheese the other day I was lucky enough to ask him if he could...

Slow food is good food

Slow food is good food

Slow down, take a second out of your busy day, enjoy some artisan chocolate, or drink some delicious coffee and let us tell you a little about our Slow Food Presidium. Not everyone has the time to savour every last mouthful of every meal consumed during the course of a week.  Some people say that that’s life, it’s fast and it’s furious, you snooze you lose, lunch is for wimps.  But we at Keen’s strongly disagree.  Everybody has the right to just slow things right down sometimes and enjoy the small stuff...
