High Weald Dairy is a family-owned organic dairy farm making beautiful British cheeses in a rural corner of West Sussex.

They specialise in creating artisan cheeses to the highest standards, many of them award-winners. Most recently, their Brighton Blue was named in the top 16 cheeses in the world at the World Cheese Awards, held in Bergamo, Italy, in October 2019. 

At Tremains Farm, they make a tempting selection of cheeses, including varieties made from organic cow's milk, sheep's milk and goat's milk. All are made with vegetarian rennet, making these cheeses suitable for vegetarians.

Cheeses from High Weald Dairy include delightful Sussex Slipcote, Ashdown Forester’s, Little Sussex, Chilli Marble, Sister Sarah, Brother Michael, Tremains Organic, Brighton Blue and their own Sussex version of Halloumi

High Weald Dairy's complete range of British cheeses can be purchased online and in many shops across the south, as well as farmers' markets and other food and drink events.

High Weald Dairy also runs regular cheese-making courses in their cheese barn at the dairy. Their one-day cheese course is led by our skilled cheesemakers who will give you a hands-on experience of making both a soft, fresh cheese and a hard cheddar-style cheese. 

You can also go behind the scenes at Tremains Farm with a Cheese Dairy Tour, which will give you a greater insight into how cheese is made in their Sussex dairy.

Local Food Sussex says

High Weald Dairy is held in such high regard for its amazing British cheeses made using traditional methods. Cheese making is a craft that shouldn't be hurried, so enjoy High Weald cheeses in the same way, by savouring every morsel.

It's so wonderful to see their Brighton Blue named as one of the world's best 16 cheeses in 2019. They're a fantastic family-run business and deserve every success.
