Vickie’s Cheese is moving to Easterdown
At the end of March 2013 we bought Easterdown – a nine acre organic smallholding with planning permission to replace the existing house.
Working with Roderick James Architects and Carpenter Oak, we now have planning permission to build this:NewHouseAtEasterdown

Easterdown Cheese is inspired by a combination of history, folklore and modern science.
Our principles are:

1. Reinventing the old in light of the new.
To rediscover lost artisan cheesemaking using history and folk tales. Then validate these with scientific tools.

2. Small Cheesemaking is Beautiful Cheesemaking
The scale of cheesemaking at Easterdown will not be dictated by whether it can scale up to supermarket supply levels or not. Like the Truffle Cheese, a viable, profitable model can be found.

3. To follow natural laws, to question conventional practices.

4. To innovate gently and with sympathy.

To create cheese out of sheeps milk from sheep we will keep ourselves.
To make cheese and live using as few fossil fuels as possible.
Easterdown was off grid when we bought it and we have chosen to remain that way using a combination of solar panels, batteries, modern electronics and an LPG generator for just-in-case power.
