Somerset Voices: Paul Green (b.1957)

Paul Green is a partner in the Green cheese-making business based in West Pennard. He runs two dairy farms with 150 cows on each, and his cousins run other farms in the area. All the milk is used in cheese-making.

He talks about the processes involved in cheese-making, contrasting today’s modern methods with those started by his grandmother in 1908. By 2003 Green cheese-making had become a worldwide business dealing with supermarkets in England and America. He talks about labour costs, profitability and expansion of the business in a very competitive environment.
