BATCH FARM CHEESEMAKERS
Batch Farm is situated in an idyllic setting on the Pennard ridge with views of the Glastonbury Tor and the Mendips beyond. Cheesemaking has been a family concern at Batch Farm for almost 50 years. The dairy is adjacent to the thatched farmhouse where Fred Gould runs the farm and Jean Turner his sister the cheesemaking business. Using milk from their 260 Friesian cows, Gould’s make around 140 tonnes of West Country Farmhouse Cheddar in the traditional 27kg cylinders.
Gould’s traditional Farmhouse Cheddar made by Batch Farm Cheese Makers is the finest farmhouse cheddar in Somerset, if not the UK. Gould’s is a multi award winning cheddar cheese and is crafted by hand using traditional methods passed down through the family for generations.
All of our farmhouse cheddar cheese is made using the milk from our own dairy herd, meaning the milk for our cheese travels minutes rather than days or hours before being turned into our award winning final products.

SIMPLY RAW MILK
Simply Raw Milk is not processed milk but milk straight from beautiful pasture-fed cows with nothing taken out. It is not pasteurised or homogenized but milk that has a wonderful creamy taste.
Simply Raw Milk, is a small dairy farm located in the beautiful Quantocks, Somerset.
We are council tenant farmers having farmed here for over 40 years. Dairy is something as a family we have always been passionate about and producing tasty first class milk comes from happy and contented cows.
The cows are mostly free-range grazing on succulent pastures. Whilst we are not a registered organic farm we believe in keeping everything as natural as possible. We do not use hormones and the farm supplies milk that is free of antibiotics. The calves stay in the field with their mothers for as long as possible.
People often ask us if it is safe - we have a license from the FSA to sell the milk direct to the public. We also have the milk and cows regularly tested. It is however a requirement of the licence that we let you know - That the milk has not been heat treated and may therefore contain organisms harmful to health.
