We are Tom and Clare Noblet, we have four children – Beth 6, Lucy 4, Jessica 2 and Thomas born in June 2015. We farm in partnership with Max and Jenny Burrow.
Tom grew up in Catterall, near Garstang, and spent a lot of time helping family members on their farms. After leaving school, he worked on various farms, as well as having spells working in a steel works and for a company that fitted, maintained and repaired milking parlours. With these, and his Dad a wagon and car mechanic he gained lots of skills that have proved invaluable as a farmer!
Clare grew up on a dairy and sheep farm at Ingleton, and trained as a nurse after leaving school, working initially in Cardiac Intensive Care before going into community nursing in Garstang and then South Lakes.
As the family has grown and since coming to Whin Yeats, we have been keen to look at ways to ensure the future sustainability of the farm, and cheese making has emerged as a way of adding value to the milk we are proud to produce.
