"I believe that all food should be cooked with quality fresh ingredients with no added preservatives. Food in Ethiopia has its very own unique flavour, and its special blend of chilli spice, called Berbere - this spice is the very essence within our cooking. Abyssinia Kitchen has a range that has something to offer everyone including vegetarians and vegans, from Doro Wot chicken stew, spiced lamb pies, red lentil and split pea Injera sourdough flat bread rolls and much more."

"Everything sold is produced at Bryn Cocyn - Black Beef, lamb, potatoes, carrots, onions, leeks and parsnips in winter, with a wider range in summer and autumn - roots, salads, spinach, chard, squashes, cooking apples and eaters and some apple juice from a small established orchard and a newly planted two acre orchard".

Patrick Noble Patrick Noble

Patrick farms this small, upland mixed farm looking out into the Vale of Clwyd.

Throughout the spring, summer and autumn, cattle and sheep at Bryn Cocyn thrive on a diet of grass and clover alone. For winter feed the farm grows oats, triticale and peas, and produces grass hay and silage. This makes Bryn Cocyn self-sufficient in animal feed and no fertilisers are bought in. Animals are slaughtered in Denbigh, only 10 minutes from the farm.

In the long Winter nights Patrick writes books - the latest one A Potent Nostalgia. Find out more on the Bryn Cocyn website here.

"We still use traditional methods which have been developed over many years to produce excellent Farmhouse and Organic Cheshire Cheese with a flavour far from mild or bland."

Mr & Mrs Bourne
H.S. Bourne
The Bourne family has connections with cheese making that can be traced back for at least six generations, when cheese making was traditionally an integral part of life on a dairy farm. Traditional Farmhouse Cheshire Cheese was made by hand, using skills passed down from father to son, and John Bourne's father, from whom much of these skills were learned, came to the farm in 1930 and continued the tradition from that time.

Their cheese is still made on the farm in the traditional 'hands on' way by John Bourne, and his son Tom, the next generation, using milk from their own "Malbank" herd of pedigree Holstein Friesian cows. Both the farm and the herd are managed in an environmentally responsible manner, with great concern for the welfare of their cows, which leads to the production of high quality milk and subsequently dairy products.
