Here at Godminster we are excited to be celebrating Somerset Day this Thursday 11th May!
Our 1300 acres of farmland is set on the outskirts of Bruton, nestled in the heart of Somerset and as proud guardians of the land we are always looking for ways to give back to nature. We love our Somerset home and have devoted some of the fields on our farm in order to provide high quality forage (including clovers, vetches, chicory and ribwort plantain) for our cows. Over the years we’ve planted plenty of extra trees within our fields to help provide more shelter and shade during both rainy and sunny periods. By doing this we hope to increase natural habitats and in turn the biodiversity of our surrounding area as part of our commitment to organic.

As part of recognising and showcasing the brilliance of our home county we will be hosting a cheese tasting in The Great House at Kilver Court on Thursday from 11am till 3pm. Like us, Kilver Court promotes organic, local produce and we are thrilled to be spending the day with them!
Later that evening, we are donating a selection of our Handmade Organic Brie for the Somerset County Council’s ‘A Celebration of Somerset Talent’ dinner in Taunton. We are honoured to be involved and look forward to a fantastic evening 🙂
Keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook & Instagram where we will be hosting a flash competition on Somerset Day itself to win a Godminster Organic Selection featuring a trio of our cheeses made right here in Somerset.
As usual the Godminster shop will be open for business with plenty of cheese tastings for visitors to come and enjoy. We hope to see you there 🙂
