In the heart of the Dorset countryside, just outside Sturminster Newton, you'll find Woodbridge Farm which has been home to the Davies family for over 40 years
.Richard took over running the farm from his father, Michael Davies, in 1989, when Mike moved on to produce the unique Dorset Blue Vinny Cheese full time.
Woodbridge Farm is home to 270 Holstein Friesian cows, on the 580 acre Stock Estate at Stock Gaylard. Richard farms on the heavy Oxford clay soil which can be challenging to the farm, growing 140 acres of corn and 100 acres of maize each year.
We calve all year round to produce a continued milk supply which goes into making Dorset Blue Vinny Cheese, which is also made at the farm. Each cow produces approx. 9,000 litres of milk per year
It is still very much a family run business, and employs 3 full-time people to help run the farm. There’s always something going on as it is home to both Dorset Blue Vinny Cheese and The Dorset Blue Soup Co.
