Bungay: Mould-breaking brie maker Jonny plays host to dairy leaders
A farm which sells milk direct from the farm will be sharing its experiences with dairy farmers from across the region on Tuesday.
Members of the National Farmers’ Union’s regional dairy board are heading to Fen Farm, on the Suffolk/Norfolk border at Bungay, to meet farmer Jonny Crickmore and find out more about the family business.
As well as operating a roadside milk dispensing business, Mr Crickmore has diversified into cheese production, launching a British brie-type cheese made with unpasteurised milk. He will talk about the farm’s experiences of diversification and the challenges they have faced.
Before the visit, the dairy board is holding a short meeting at the Buck Inn, Flixton, at 11am, followed by a sandwich lunch.
NFU regional dairy adviser Diane Armitage said: “Fen Farm is one of just a handful across the country selling milk direct to the public so this should be a really interesting visit for dairy farmers.

“Both the visit and the meeting are open to any NFU member with dairy interests and we’re hoping for a good turnout on the day.”
