Here we are in high summer and the events diary for Park House Farm and Torpenhow Cheese Company is already looking very full!
As we write, we are at the International Cheese Awards at the Staffordshire Showground, eagerly awaiting the results to be announced, so fingers crossed… But while we’re waiting, we thought it’s a good opportunity to let you know what’s coming up during July and where you can come and meet us.
