Somerset, the home of Capricorn Somerset Goats cheese

Somerset, the home of Capricorn Somerset goats cheeseMore than 1300 years ago, West Saxon farmers used to fatten their cattle in a place where pastures were so rich that they called it the Summer Land. Eventually, it became known as Somerset.

Today our county is regarded as one of the best dairy farming regions in the UK with ideal soils and a good rainfall producing lush sweet grazing.

Somerset offers diverse scenery from the undulating wooded countryside that surrounds the Lubborn Creamery at Cricket St Thomas, to the “big” skies and the moorland of Exmoor National Park.

Somerset is a real taste of the West Country and an ideal place to explore and to relax in.
