What time do you get up?

To be honest I am not a morning person. Ashamedly I am the last person up in the house - even on a cheesemaking day.

What’s your favourite cheese (other than the ones you make)?

It has to be Cheddar. The amount of labour that goes into a Farmhouse Cheddar is staggering.

What do you drink with the cheese that you make?

I am partial to a Port ...or three!

What’s your favourite cheese anecdote?

I can remember once James (Aldridge) made a Morbier style cheese. A lady came into the shop and asked where the ash in the middle came from. James replied 'from the local crematorium'. The lady quickly responded 'ooh, great, I like a cheese with a bit of body'!

If you weren’t a cheesemaker what would you be? 

I Nearly, very nearly became a Firefighter. But I am glad I chose the cheese path. I wouldn't want to be anything else!

What is your favourite view? 

The summit of a snow covered mountain drinking a schnapps.....just before you are about to risk life and limb trying to get to the bottom with a plank of wood strapped to your feet.

What’s your greatest extravagance?

Not so much an extravagance as a way of life. My 3 boys. Leo, Max and Noa.....oh and the wife!
