Our Story

Our story dates back 100 years. Bradfields Farm has been owned by the Lambert family since 1922. Originally starting with twelve Ayreshire cows, we now have over 120 Holstein-Fresian cows. We have a long tradition of producing delicious milk.

I am Clare, the youngest of the three Lambert sisters. We are daughters of Farmer Nick who runs the farm along with my sister, Sarah. We are a mixed farm. This means that we have grassland for the cows. We also grow as many crops as possible ourselves in order to feed to the cows.

I love cheese making and wanted to make and sell our own cheese from the Farm. I also wanted to sell fresh cream and milk, as we had from the Farm gate many years ago.

The first cheese made from our milk in our small new “cheese room” was called Chalvedon. This is a Manchego style hard cheese named after Little Chalvedon Hall which is a nearby farm that we rent. That’s where we keep our young calves and heifers before they join the herd.

In February 2017 we opened the dairy as a new enterprise. We have a small shop selling our new cheese as well as our fresh milk and cream.

Since that quiet opening, we have expanded our of dairy products. These include cream, creme fraiche as well as three types of yogurt. All of these are available from the vending machines in our shop. We also sell our products at Farmer’s markets at the Farm, locally and and in London
