Bookham Harrison Farms 2019-11-13T16:51:33+00:00


We are dairy farmers and cheesemakers on the Surrey Sussex border, midway between Guildford and Horsham.

We are a family owned business on the Sussex border with Surrey, twenty minutes south of Guildford, in the village of Rudgwick. The Harrison family started milking nine cows here, back in 1952. Since then, they have transformed that tiny herd into the successful agricultural enterprise that R. Harrison and Sons is today.

Over in Mid-Sussex, another family, the Bookhams, were making Twineham Grange and South Downs Butter, using milk from the Harrisons’ dairy. It was whilst making this Vegetarian version of Italian Style Hard Cheese, the only one ever to be produced in England, that a strong relationship was forged between the two families, leading them to create another unique and very special cheese: Sussex Charmer.

Our Sussex Charmer Cheese is made using milk from our own herd of grass-fed cows. Based on a combination of two separate recipes, one a mature farmhouse cheddar and the other an Italian style hard cheese, this unique product has been wowing the national and international cheese scene for over a decade, winning GOLD at the International Cheese Awards 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, as well as the prestigious Best British Cheddar at The Quality Food Awards 2017.

Twineham Grange is the only Vegetarian Society Approved Italian Style Hard Cheese available in the UK.
