Owner Profile - Colin Anstey
Proprietor of Ansteys Cheese, Worcester
Born at Broomhall Farm, many moons ago, and continues to live at the farm house on site. This enables Colin to react quickly to needs as they arise, for example taking in deliveries or fixing leaky taps!
Colin has overseen many changes at the farm in his lifetime. This includes increasing the dairy herd from 30 to 200 cows and introducing cheese making and retailing.
Over the past 10 years, since the sale of the cows, Colin has project managed and been heavily involved practically in the project of the conversion of the farm buildings. Throughout the restoration great attention was paid to retaining existing features and ensuring that the Victorian buildings were sympathetically preserved for future generations.
Colin is married to Alyson, who is also available to assist. They are parents to Lawrence, Naomi and Issy who can be seen on the farm from time to time.
