Farm 24 - Little Farmer

“When I grow up, I want to be a farmer”.

Nicola, niece of Gill Hall (Owner of Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses), Matt, 5-year-old Henry and 2-year-old Cora live on Throstle Nest Farm, where they look after 1,000 goats. It’s a 24-hour job, Matt is often up through the night assisting with the birth of the kids. Henry loves to help out when he can on tasks he can manage, like feeding. Nicola and Matt really try to keep him engaged in farming and hope that one day he can take over the family business that they built together.

The milk from Throstle Nest Farm goes on to make our award-winning Kidderton Ash and Ravens Oak cheeses.
