Our dairy produce comes from several local sources. Organic milk and cream come from Goodwood Farm. It is produced by their herd of Dairy Shorthorn cows, a native breed famous for its good nature and the quality of its milk. Milk from Goodwood is non-homogenised and processed at their own farm shortly after the cows are milked. Non-organic milk, yogurts and other dairy products also available. All our eggs are free range and freshly delivered from "Ken's Eggs" and other local suppliers.

Sussex cheese is a speciality at Graffham Village Shop and we vary our stock as we introduce new varieties. A favourite among the locals is Sussex Charmer, a hard-pressed cheese matured for up to 1 year with a flavour which is a cross between Cheddar and Parmesan. Another cheese popular in Graffham is St Giles, a mild, creamy cheese with an edible orange rind somewhat similar to the French Port Salut. St Giles is delivered to us from the High Weald Dairy and was voted fifth best cheese at the World Cheese Awards 2009. We would love to say it was named after our own St Giles Church. Alas St Giles is also the patron saint of St Giles, Horsted Keynes, where the cheese is made! Other cheeses regularly on our shelves include Scrumpy Sussex, sheep's cheese such as Sussex Slipcote, and Sussex Brie and Camembert from The Cheese Man. Whilst we love our local cheese you will also find cheese from other parts of the country and even as far away as France!
