I have recently discovered that Brown’s Cheeses have opened up their farm to cheese and wine lunches.  They organise relaxed lunches using of of their natural cheeses, and accompany them with a variety of homemade breads, jams and chutneys and salads that are all homegrown using biodynamic and organic farming methods.   It is worth mentioning that this really is a family business, and the thought and planning that goes into their Farm Visits is visible in every way.

There are two different tasting sessions, the first at 1,500Kshs per person (minimum of 4 attendees or 5,000Kshs) which takes an hour, tour of the factor, tasting 5 cheeses with the breads and chutneys and a glass of wine/beer or juice and the opportunity to buy the cheese at factory price. Or you can really spoilt yourself for 2,500kshs pp. (minimum 6 attendees or 15,000kshs) you get a private tasting session, discover flavour differences and cheese families with 8 different cheeses, a tour of the factory and overview of how cheese is made; all topped off with a 3 course lunch made with 100% homegrown ingredients, set in green and tranquil surroundings of the farm.  Extras include milking of cows possible for kids if interested, a short walk in the forest often inhabited by Colobus monkeys, or my favourite, Mozzarella making for groups that are interested.

Browns is based in Tigoni, surrounded by all the stunning tea estates and just half an hour’s drive out of Nairobi, this is a wonderful opportunity to sample excellently prepared cheese, fresh out of our factory and some of which are seasonal so they are only available at our premises.

The tastings are by appointment only so please email or call to book your group. email:  [email protected]  or call 0716 875 766
