WESTCOMBE DAIRY AT THE ROYAL BATH & WEST SHOW

The Royal Bath and West Show is one of the biggest events on the Somerset agricultural calendar. Dating back 150 years, it's a truly historic event and one of the few remaining old-school farm shows left in the UK. At Westcombe Dairy we're very proud of our decade-long association with it.

Westcombe has picked up many awards and medals over the years of exhibiting at the Bath & West, which is always an honour, but it's not really why we make the effort. It's a special event, and if you've never been, then make the next one a priority.

There's nothing quite like the Royal Bath & West Show. Aside for a trip to Wilkin's Cider Farm, there aren't many genuine experiences of proper Somerset left. But the Bath & West has it all, from prize livestock displays and show-jumping, to sheep shearing trials, farming machinery demos and, of course, enough traditional Somerset food and drink to sink a ship.

The atmosphere at the Bath & West is always great, with huge crowds coming out to join the fun and be part of one of the country’s biggest and best farming shows. It's a great opportunity to catch up with other producers, both old and new, and just get stuck in and meet people.

Cheddar and Duckett's Aged Caerphilly, giving away loads of taster samples and pitting our lovely cheeses against the best the county has to offer.

So thanks to everyone who comes to say hello and buys some of our cheese – we're always blown away by people's response and it's always great to hear

feedback from people on how they enjoy our cheeses.

Thanks also to the organisers and judges of the show, who have generously awarded our cheeses a raft of medals and trophies over the years. We'll see you all again in 2015!
Tom.
