The View from The Shard overlooks the city of London and the world-famous Borough Food Market. With its historical setting, the market is home to over 100 artisan food stalls and producers including Bath Soft Cheese, the only dairy producer stall with its own organic farm. Park Farm sits just outside the world heritage city of Bath and is home to The Bath Soft Cheese Company and the Padfield family, whose ancestors have been cheesemaking since the early 1900’s. With an enviable reputation as producers of the finest artisan soft cheeses in the West Country, they are most famous for the Bath Soft Cheese itself, an outstanding and unique-tasting cheese, the recipe for which goes back hundreds of years (a favourite of Admiral Nelson, no less!) All their award-winning organic cheeses are made by hand at Park Farm in the village of Kelston using milk from their own cows. There is an old farming saying, “Look after your cows and your cows will look after you” This goes into the heart of what happens here at Park Farm and the Padfields take a traditional approach both to how they raise and graze their small herd of 160 mainly Holstein Friesian cows and to our artisan, handmade, hands-on cheesemaking. Annual Pass Members of The View from the Shard can enjoy exclusive discounts when visiting The Bath Soft Cheese Co and The Bath Dairy stall at Borough Market Kitchen. The Bath Dairy opened in 2019, serving hot cheese dishes. Choose from freshly prepared hot dishes featuring our award-winning cheeses and incredible milkshakes made with our organic milk. The discount for annual pass members is 10% off cheese purchases at the Bath Soft Cheese Stall and 10% off the hot food and milkshakes at The Bath Dairy.
