HAND-MADE, HAND-CUT, HAND-LOVED

About us

The Huntbach family has been have been dairy farmers at Hayfields Farm, South Cheshire, for three generations. The family first settled on the farm in September 1949. The family first started producing cheese in 1957. Although the last dairy cow left the farm in 2018 and the family sorely miss the sight of black and white cows wandering the fields, it has given them the capacity to focus on selling their good quality, tasty cheese and butter to a wider audience. We only use milk from farmers based locally to us so that we can establish good relationship with our suppliers and know the farming practice used in making the milk we use.
Three generations of the Huntbach family still live and work on the farm and the three small children are already either donning their wellies or consuming cheese and butter at every opportunity to help out with the family business.

Through Rob’s innovation and desire for his small family business to be sustainable in today’s market, the dairy processing plant was established in 2007.

Rob is very excited about the potential of sharing his produce with a wider audience.
