Situated just outside Howick, in the KZN Midlands, is Preston Farm. Nestling in the rolling hills of the Karkloof, this beautiful farm – established in 1972 – is owned and run by Grant Warren and his family.
The La Petite France handmade cheese factory is built on the farm. Jersey and Swedish Red cows dot the green pastures surrounding the dairy and factory. Grant's philosophy is one of natural balance so the focus is on milk quality and not quantity. An abundance of rye grass enables the cows to produce rich, natural-tasting, top quality milk. Cows, being natural grazers, are given the freedom to graze the fields day and night, the whole year round. The cows are not pushed for production with grains, processed foods or hormones. They develop a high natural immunity thus minimising veterinary interventions. This translates into milk with high food value, digestibility and delicious taste.
Our cheeses are handmade using gentle techniques and processes. They contain no chemicals or additives. Their natural, full-boddied flavours derive from setting nature to work as was done in traditional cheese-making.
Preston Farm is at 9 Karkloof Road, Howick, 3290 (6km from Supaquick)
