Jason Fewell on 15 years at Wyke, Ivy’s Dairy & Teamwork making the dream work…

I have worked at Wyke for 15 years (this week as it happens!). I love working for a forward-thinking company that doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’! All the team here are very much part of the family & management genuinely care about those who work for them. I think this is reflected in everyone. We have some of the best people I have ever worked with; from Sales and Marketing to Packaging & Distribution, you really get that family feel wherever you go, which in some cases is exactly that with generations of the same family working here.

As Engineering Director, I put a real importance on maintenance. We have a huge variety of machinery to maintain & my team to an excellent job of this. Food Manufacturing Engineers are some of the most versatile in the industry. We do not rest on our laurels – the whole team are keen to develop our technology and design which means we are constantly improving. Wyke will always respect the traditional values of cheesemaking but are also embracing new and innovative approaches. This environment means that we can nurture talent from the ground up. Both of our site Managers are former operators who are now fully qualified electrical engineers; not only does this fill me with pride, but it also means that they are able to see both sides of a problem. They literally know the process inside and out. We currently have several promising apprentices in the engineering department – being able to help young talent reach their potential is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. My team are my friends and my support.

In 15 years, I have had many highlights at Wyke. One project that stands out is the commissioning and building of our Anaerobic Digestion Plant. The completion of that project meant that Wyke runs on 100% renewable energy, as do several local villages. Pretty impressive stuff given that the waste we use would have previously gone to landfill! Following this building a low energy wastewater reuse plant where we recover 80% of the water, we use on site for cleaning the plant.

The Anaerobic Digestion Plant

From winning the European Sustainability Award to being first dairy to achieve the Carbon Trust Triple Standard (waste, water, and energy) just confirmed that not only did it make good business sense but it also fantastic for the environment – something that is always at the forefront of our mind as a business.

In recent years, demand for our cheddar has grown, particularly in export markets. And with cheese that tastes this good it is no surprise! We have recently completed the build of an energy efficient 2200 tonne maturing store at our Wincanton site & now we begin the highly anticipated build of Ivy’s Dairy. A 10000m2 production space which will ensure that our production of cheese and butter are fit for the future.

I am so excited for the future at Wyke, the last 15 years will be hard to top – but with a team & cheddar like ours it will be easy!

On Friday 7th May we held our breath as the judges at The Virtual Cheese Awards deliberated over a variety of cheddars. Needless to say, the competition was strong, as the home of Cheddar – Britain boasts the best selection in the world. Watching cheese be judged is a mix between appreciating the attention to detail (the main criteria; appearance, body, flavour and colour) & feeling very hungry wondering whether you have any crackers and chutney around. Very happily for us, the judges decided that our Ivy’s Vintage Reserve Cheddar was the best in class. This win is a testament to the hardwork of the whole Wyke team, from farmers who supply the best milk all the way through to Master Cheese Grader, Diane who carefully watches over our cheddar as it matures. Of course, none of it would have been possible without the work of Grandmother Ivy, who painstakingly perfected the recipe that we use, unchanged, to this day. We will be continuing our celebrations for long while to come!

How long have you been at Wyke & what do you do?

I am Renewable Energy Technical Manager at Wyke Farms and I have worked here for over 5 years. I work on a number of technical areas in the business but mainly on renewable energy and environmental. 

What do you like (love..) about working at Wyke?

I really enjoy how varied my job is and that I work on so many different aspects of the business. My job title is only a snapshot of what my day could involve, from sitting at my laptop in my office one minute to being out and about at our AD Plant, in a field when we are digestate spreading or at our production facilities. I like being involved in our many green initiatives and trying to make positive environmental changes across the business which is very satisfying and rewarding. My job at Wyke involves working with so many different people which I really enjoy as the environmental side to our business is an important part in all our operations, more now than ever. 

Its World Earth Day, this week. Can you tell us a little bit about Wyke’s 100% Green initiative?

Wyke Farms started its 100% Green initiative back in 2012 with a goal of improving the environmental sustainability of it business operations. The flagship project is our AD Plant, processing feedstock to generate renewable energy and nutrient rich digestate fertiliser. We also have solar arrays across multiple site roof spaces both which have increased in capacity of the years. Besides this, we are also recovering water from our production processes to reduce our reliance on primary water use. There are many other improvements and solutions we have implemented as part of carbon, water and waste reductions across our sites. 

With our HQ being in the rural setting of Wyke Champflower and our other sites in the surrounding area we are very conscious in our relationship with the ecosystems around us that we depend on to live and work. Farming is an important part of our business and we have been trying to improve habitats on the farm, for example, by increasing tree and hedge planting in recent years. 

Do you have any tips on living a greener lifestyle?

It’s hard to give tips about being green as everyone lives different lifestyles but all I can say is we have all got to try and do our bit to help the environment. There are many different ways to make green lifestyle changes, in the home, commuting, what we buy etc. some of which are more expensive than others. However, at this point in time, we all need to be doing our bit, otherwise the environment that we see today wont be there for future generations to enjoy. As we all know, areas of our planet have already been damaged beyond repair. As stated by David Attenborough “Today we are experiencing environmental change as never before and the need to take action has never been more urgent. To preserve our planet, we need to act now”.

  19. Promoter: Wyke Farms Ltd, White House Farm, Bruton BA10 0PU 

This month marks the very exciting launch of ‘Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar.’ Made here at Wyke, using milk from herds that graze on Worthy Farm – the home of Glastonbury Festival.

From the 17th of February packs will be available to purchase exclusively in Co-Op stores across the UK. Not only is this a chance for Glastonbury fans to get a taste of Worthy Farm in 2021 – the launch promotion is giving the opportunity to win tickets for the festival when it returns in 2022. Matured under the watchful eye of our master cheese grader for six months, it’s destined to be in every good fridge’s line up. Was there ever a better excuse to eat more cheese?

It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team at Worthy Farm, which is just a stone’s throw away from us in Wyke Champflower. Not only do our families share in a long tradition of Somerset farming, the Eavis family have a long history in cheesemaking too, as Michael Eavis explains:

‘About 100 years ago, my Grandfather decided to make the milk at Worthy Farm into Caerphilly cheese. He secured a good price from the Welsh coal miners, bought the first lorry around here and delivered it once a week to the coal pits. This trade made him quite rich and powerful. But the general strike in 1926 ended all of that. He had to mortgage the farm and close the cheese production down. He converted his AC car (equivalent to the Aston Martin of today) into a horse drawn cart and called it ‘Dofunny.’ The vehicle took the kids to school and went on weekly shopping trips to Glastonbury. Now 100 years later, after 50 years of recent festival history, our farm milk is being made into cheese again by Wyke Farms and the finest reserve cheddar selected for Worthy Farm packs – what a comeback!!’

Our shared family values, passion for sustainable farming & commitment to producing the highest quality cheddar are all things that make our partnership such a natural fit.

We are also very pleased to be working with the Co-op who have a long history of supporting British Farmers. Joanne Wadsworth, Co-op cheese buyer, said: “Co-op is well-known for its support of producers, plus our on-going relationship and shared values with the Glastonbury Festival makes our stores the perfect home for Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar.”

We could not agree more & look forward to seeing Worthy Cheddar being enjoyed all over the UK!

  19. Promoter: Wyke Farms Ltd, White House Farm, Bruton BA10 0PU 

We are absolutely delighted to have won The Food and Drink Federation’s, Exporter of the Year Award 2020. The Awards ceremony, in true 2020/21 fashion, was held virtually & presented by journalist & food critic Jay Rayner.

Receiving recognition from the FDF means a great deal to everyone at Wyke. Sharing our cheese around the world has its challenges but nothing beats the excitement we feel seeing our cheddar in places so far away from home. Our grandmother, Ivy, who perfected the recipe we use to this day; never had a passport, we know she would be extremely proud that it has gained appreciation in so many corners of the globe!

We will proudly continue to fly the flag for Britain & share our delicious cheddar, around the world.

With Christmas Celebrations upon us, we have put together a selection of our favorite cheesy canapes. Enjoy!

Mini Cheddar & Sun Dried Tomato Frittatas

These Sun Dried Tomato & Cheddar Fritattas are the definition of minimum effort, maximum impact! A true crowd pleaser & you probably have the 5 ingredients already. We paired these with a spicy tomato chutney but you can get creative with your dip of choice. https://wykefarms.com/recipe/mini-cheddar-sun-dried-tomato-frittatas/

Cheddar, Onion and Cider Rolls

Being based in Somerset, we couldnt resist adding a little cider into one of our canapes! As it happens Thatchers Vintage Cider is the perfect match for our namesake Vintage Reserve Cheddar – these dissappeared very shortly after coming out of the oven. We would suggest leaving yourself a little longer to get these perfect – its worth it! https://wykefarms.com/recipe/cheddar-onion-and-cider-rolls/

Cheddar & Chorizo Croquettes

The perfect canape for enjoying with a bottle of bubbly. Devilishly moreish – we would suggest making two batches – you will be craving more by Boxing Day… https://wykefarms.com/recipe/cheddar-chorizo-croquetas/

And finally, for those with a sweet tooth… Mini Fruit Bundt Cakes

Beautifully festive, these mini fruit bundt cakes are perfect for serving alongside a warm festive tipple.Lightly spiced, packed full of fruit soaked with cider they not only look like little showstoppers, they taste delightfully festive too!

A tradition from the North, fruit cake is surprisingly a great addition to a cheese board. Served alongside cheddar, fruit cakes offer great sweetness and balance to the board. Simply omit the white chocolate topping to these cakes and serve. https://wykefarms.com/recipe/mini-fruit-bundt-cakes/
