About The Bath Soft Cheese Co

Award-winning organic cheese made by hand at Park Farm, Kelston near Bath with milk from our own cows.

There is an old farming saying, “Look after your cows and your cows will look after you.” It goes to the heart of what happens here at Park Farm. We take a traditional approach both to how we raise and graze our small herd of 160 mainly Holstein Friesian cows and to our artisan, handmade, hands-on cheesemaking.

We are entirely organic and are registered with Organic Farmers and Growers – so that means no fungicides, pesticides or artificial fertilisers are used on our land. Instead we use manure and organic compost: the environment, the land and the waterways remain uncontaminated.

The Padfield family have been milking happily milking their herd of cows at Park Farm since 1914, with Cheddar cheese the first cheese produced out of the farmhouse. In 1990, Graham Padfield decided to start making cheese again, less than 50 yards from where the cows are milked.

He tracked down the original recipe for Bath Cheese, recommended to Admiral Lord Nelson in a letter from his father in 1801, and has never looked back, winning an impressive list of awards across the whole range.
