Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Bourne on being finalists for the prestigious BBC Food and Farming awards. We’re delighted that you have been one of our regular stallholders since we began and look forward to tasting your award winning cheese in June.
The Bourne family has been hand-making fine Cheshire cheese since 1750, and since 1930 at the Bank Farm. Made with the milk from their herd of Friesian cows, they still use traditional ‘hands on’ techniques. With great concern for the welfare of their Fresians, this leads to the production of high quality milk and subsequently allows them to produce award winning dairy products.
BBC Food and Farming Awards are open to anyone who produces food – whether it’s pork or beef, bread or butter, cheese or chocolate. Food producers enrich our lives and local economies and these awards are about the people and businesses using lots of skill, quality ingredients and dedication to create an excellent, fairly priced, delicious finished product.
