Darts Farm Cheese Safari with Mary Quicke: Thursday 21st March 8:45am – 2:00pm

The image in my head when I found out about this is one that I might leave to the pages of my memoirs.  But cows made of cheese and land rovers came in to mind.  Alas I feel that this is something that is going to be much less surreal and far more enjoyable.

Part of Darts Farm’s Food Club, this Cheese Safari with Mary Quicke MBE and Tutored Cheese tasting event is an absolute must for anyone with a passion for cheese.
