Our range of award-winning, organic dairy products has earned us an enviable reputation as one of Scotland’s most respected artisan creameries. As one of our earliest work ventures, we started making cheese at Loch Arthur in 1985 from the milk of our two Jersey and two Ayrshire cows. From these humble beginnings our cheeses have become recognised and sought after and are now produced in our purpose built Creamery and sold throughout the UK. As members of the Specialist Cheesemakers Association we are one of many small creameries representing the modern renaissance of artisan cheeses now being produced in Great Britain. Every year since 1991 our cheeses have received awards and accolades in some of the top cheese competitions in the UK. All of our handmade, organic, farmhouse cheeses are produced from the milk of our own biodynamic farm and local organic farms, and are certified by the Biodynamic Agricultural Association (BDAA Organic Certification UK6). They are all produced using vegetarian rennet. Our extensive range of cheeses and dairy products are sold in our own Farm Shop and in fine cheese shops and delicatessens throughout the UK. Our cheeses can also be ordered online. Loch Arthur is part of the Camphill Village Trust which encompasses several communities whose life and work incorporate adults with special needs. The wo

We specialise in fine cheese, wine and craft beer. We stock a range of cheeses from the UK and Europe and specialise in finding cheese from smaller, independent dairies. We have a similar philosophy on beer and wine and seek out lesser known beers, ales and wine from the UK and Europe. As well as this we welcome you to sit in and enjoy our renowned cheeseboards and toasties or coffee by Climpson & Sons and pastries by Aura Rosa. We also deliver cheese and beer to anywhere in the UK.

Member and supplier of Pasture for Life beef
Highest welfare, compassionate, kind and gentle micro-dairy producing and selling whole raw Jersey milk. Our small herd of cows are Pasture Fed for Life and are allowed to keep their calves, they run together as one natural herd of all ages from new borns to great great grandmas. Each cow is milked individually unrestrained just once a day and is given time and attention to her own specific needs, each cow knows her own name and comes running to the call. The male calves are weaned at a natural age depending on his own and his mothers needs (each animal is treated on its own merit there are no set rules or standardisation at CAFD). After the grass has finished at the end of each year we sell our own ‘Pasture Fed for Life’ beef. Cow shares for beef £50 a share. Granny cows retire here on the farm after their re-production days are over. We do not sell animals on live. It is our responsibility to ensure our animals have as gentle death as is humanely possible. Nationwide courier service £2.50 per litre bottle of milk.
