Progress Continues Apace!

The sixth of May had long been in the calendar as A Very Important Day –  the day we took over the shell of the building that had been constructed at Puxton Court Farm, and began to transform it into our very own dairy. This is how the building looked last Tuesday, 6th May:

The space looks huge!

That very same day, wall and ceiling panels arrived on site.

When we visited the building yesterday morning, the place had been transformed. There were internal walls and ceilings, corridors and doorways.

In just two more days, all the internal partitions will have been installed. To see the drawings come to life is incredibly exciting… a little bit too exciting are words that have left Todd’s mouth on more than one occasion!

A large, high-ceilinged make room will sit alongside three maturation rooms large enough to house hundreds of rounds of cheese as it ripens and matures into delicious Gorwydd Caerphilly. We can’t wait to start filling this brand new building with our 150 year old cheese presses, old wooden cheese stands, and most importantly, the beautiful 4.5 metre long stainless steel Dutch cheese vat.

Even the cows, recently let out to graze in the pastures surrounding the dairy, couldn’t hide their curiosity!
