The Dairy Farmers welcome Tom Kitchin

10 Jun 2012
It was a real honour for all at Orkney Cheddar to welcome world renowned chef Tom Kitchin to our Isles. It’s great that such a well-known figure, famed for using the very best produce, took time out to visit us all the way up here.

We gathered almost all the dairy farmers together to give him a big welcome at Berriedale Farm, home of our Chairman Marcus Wood. Tom spent a whole afternoon at the farm and Erlend’s wife Sarah, and guardian of the main farmhouse, welcomed Tom and everyone else in for a huge lunch spread, complete with the main centrepiece, Orkney Cheddar.

Tom then disappeared off to see what the rest of the island had to offer, but he seemed delighted with the welcome he received upon touch down on Orkney.
