Farmers' Markets

Every weekend Kingsmeade is involved in local farmers' markets, along with a variety of other local producers, growers, coffee makers, butchers, bakers and many more.

There are places to sit and enjoy a nice platter or snack and maybe even a glass of wine. You can sample our most of our cheeses and we cut them to whatever size you would like. Our stalls are run by our own cheesemakers (usually Miles) and sheep milkers who are informed and happy to answer your questions about the cheese, the sheep and anything else we can!
