 Jonny is the “force majeure” at Fen Farm Dairy. He has been working on the farm since the age of four, when he would sneak out of bed at 3am and follow his Dad to the cowshed to help with the morning jobs. Now there is a little less sneaking involved but no fewer early mornings and wild enthusiasm.

Dulcie, married to Jonny, shelved her day job as a costume designer, to have their two kids and to take part in the marketing and business development at Fen Farm Dairy.

Together, Jonny and Dulcie have diversified the original farm with the addition of a pioneering cheese and butter making business. Their focus is on making exceptional artisan products and helping other dairy farmers on their journey to diversification.
