Cheesemakers since 1952, Lye Cross Farm are proud to produce Cheddar cheese in the heart of the West Country. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Lye Cross Farm has 4,300 acres of the very best pasture land in the world, which is home to a herd of 1,200 dairy cattle.

The Alvis family’s multi-award winning company has secured a strong foothold in the UK market, and also exports to more than 40 countries. Whilst Cheddar Cheese is the most famous cheese in the world, Lye Cross Farm also sources other carefully selected quality cheeses, including Stilton, Red Leicester and Wensleydale. Lye Cross Farm not only sells cheese to supermarkets, shops and delicatessens, but also packages cheese for own-brand labels.

Fresh, locally sourced produce
The Farm Shop boasts fantastic butchery, cheese, delicatessen and bread counters, with milk, bread, fruit and veg delivered daily from the local market.

Our butchers are on hand 7 days a week with advice on cuts of meat and those all important cooking instructions! Beef is reared on the family farms and is sold alongside locally sourced lamb, pork and poultry.

The Farm Shop has fresh fish delivered every Thursday, has a great range of local beers, cider and wine, and is a must-see, one-stop shop for great quality produce at excellent prices.

Our Award Winning Cheddars
The Farm Shop is a unique in-sight into what happens at Lye Cross Farm and gives you the opportunity to enjoy our award winning Cheddars only metres from where they are made.

Set in the heart of the site surrounded by the dairy and packing facilities, the cheese is aged just metres from the tills and the range is graded and hand picked to sell in the shop. We stock the full range of Lye Cross Farm Cheddar in pre-packed portions and blocks, and is sold alongside a huge range of other popular cheeses picked regionally or because they are “must-have” for any cheese lover’s fridge.
