A bit about Cheese Rolling

Cheese Rolling hails from the UK where it is thought to be an ancient fertility ritual. Large cheese wheels are rolled and chased down the steep hill.

Cheese Rolling paddock on the Henderson farm is in the process of pasture regeneration. It has been ploughed, the winter swedes are growing and it will be sown with grass seed at the end of 2011. Therefore it is out of Cheese Rolling action for a while so we are taking a break.
We hope to be back bigger, better and faster in 2013. Keep in touch!
