Win Suffolk Cheeses every month for a year for our 14th Birthday!

Yes, you read that correctly. How d’ya fancy winning the competition that keeps on giving? Yup, a prize of some cheese from Suffolk (and some a little beyond, to be honest), every single month for the next 12 months to celebrate our Birthday!


Some of you may be getting a sense of Déjà vu here. That’s because we did this for our 12th Birthday! We’ve decided to do it all again for two reasons:

1 – It was one of the most popular competitions we have ever run, so why not do it again?

2 – Our dear friends at Earsham Street Deli now have not one, but two delis!

And 12 months plus 2 delis is 14, right? Ok, a bit tenuous, but do you care? You might be winning a whole year’s worth of cheese!!!

Just a little heads up, you will need to give us permission to contact you otherwise we can’t tell you if you win. Details further down.

It’s now 14 years since Woodfarm fell out of my little brain and into the Suffolk countryside, and then to the rivers, and then Tuscany, which we hope is coming very soon at long last!

So we figured we need to celebrate big time!

You may think we’ve gone crackers, and we have, as that’s exactly what you will win. Ok, we’ll send you some cheese and stuff too, courtesy of the cheese and crackers experts at Earsham Street Deli. Each month they will select the very best of what’s good right then, from Suffolk Gold made just a few miles from Woodfarm HQ, to Baron Bigod made in Bungay, and a number of other Suffolk Cheeses as well, with one or two from that there Norfolkshire. 

There’ll also be some amazing artisan cheeses made further afield too, and of course, there’ll be perfectly paired accompaniments and occasionally a delicious chocolatey treat too!

The marketing overlords at Team Woodfarm (Carl and Andrew) sat scratching their wise heads and wondered what we could do to celebrate being here for 14 years. We Googled what was synonymous with the number 14 and very little was! Nothing interesting anyway!

We then did some blue-sky thinking and pondering outside the envelope (2 points in office bingo!) and we came up with nothing. When we ran it up the flagpole (another point!) we remembered that we did a brilliant competition with our friends at the deli for our 12th birthday and that was hugely popular, so…

We decided to do it again! More out of genius than laziness we would say!

Two years ago the Queens of cheese at Earsham Street Deli came up with the idea of selecting cheeses of the month for us, every month for a year, to send to one lucky WINNER! That winner was a lady called Liesel, and she loved her prize!

See what happens when you get experts involved?! 

There are some great Suffolk Cheeses to choose from, as well as many other local-ish ones too.

So the prize on offer is a monthly arrival to one lucky WINNER of some wonderful cheese, selected for you, along with some crackers, chutney etc, and as we said, the odd additional extra tasty treat too, depending on the season and the mood! 

This is the prize to give you a real feel for some fine cheeses, many of which will be local, but all made with love! Just a little reminder, you will need to give us permission to contact you otherwise we can’t tell you if you win. Details below.

We have some fabulous cheeses made in the area, from Baron Bigod, to Suffolk Gold and Suffolk Blue. There are also some amazing examples just over the border in Norfolk too, so you’ll be sure to be winning one or two of those as well! Fun fact: the family behind the awesome Baron Bigod (a Suffolk Brie) were on my delivery rounds when I did my deliveries for the deli during lockdown 1.0!

Ok, so how do you get your chance to WIN?



3 – FILL THE FORM BELOW WITH A VERY SIMPLE QUESTION! (You will need to give us permission to contact you if you win!)

Please note that once you have submitted your entry, your screen will just look blank. It isn’t though, just scroll back up and you will see a confirmation message.

If you do NOT consent to being contacted by Woodfarm Barns and Barges we will be unable to enter you into this competition, as we would be unable to contact you if you were to win. Your name and email address are stored securely. We will NEVER share your name and email address with any third parties. You are welcome to unsubscribe at any time by either clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link on the emails or by contacting us directly.

Even though we’ve said this, around 5% of you will still tick ‘No’ to being contacted as we have become a suspicious society assuming everyone is out to get you. We’re not, we just want to give you some cheese, which you will never, ever, ever get if you tick NO. And STILL loads of you will tick no. I just palmed my face in desperation for the future of the human race. Seriously I did!


I’m a vegan too. Life isn’t fair sometimes. Please don’t have a go at me though. It is a FREE competition and just not for you. 

Look for more free stuff that you can have. We may give away some tofu one day, and you can be part of the fun. Although tofu is never fun.

Terms & Conditions

The prize for this Competition is a monthly selection of cheeses, crackers and other things as alluded to above. We will need to be able to send your prize to an address where it can be signed for as it’ll be cheese. Cheese will get very stinky if it’s left on your front doorstep all day.

Please note that we cannot announce the winner first on Social Media, it has to be by email. If we do not hear back from you within 24 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another correct entrant and so on until someone responds. 

By entering you do consent to us announcing your name on Social Media once you have accepted your prize. We won’t divulge any personal info, of course, it’ll just be your name. We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops though!

We will run this competition for a month or so and pick the winner using a random number generator on Google. This will be done around the end of June 2023. We’ll email every entrant at that time, win or lose to let you know who won. There is no cash alternative.

Victor Meldrew clause: If all that doesn’t suit you or you are of the opinion that “no one ever wins these” then feel free to not enter and gaze at your navel instead. We have given away so many prizes over the years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them if you bumble through life with Meldrew-shaped chips on your shoulders, saying “I don’t believe it”.

GDPR gubbins…

The whole GDPR thing was cooked up by a woefully inadequate government and was supposed to protect us all from scammers. It didn’t work. Scammers will still scam people. But we are not them. We are not out to get you. We are trying to have fun and give things away occasionally as it helps to promote our business, that’s all. Pinky swear.

We absolutely never share your info and we retain it purely and simply so we can keep you informed. Informed of our regular Competitions like this one, Exclusive VIP Offers, Cancellations, Events, Places of Interest to you, and News from around the beautiful county of Suffolk. It is called Marketing. We keep you informed of this good stuff so that you may consider us when making your holiday and short break decisions.

If you do not wish to hear about the things mentioned you can opt out now by not entering this at all and just making a cup of tea instead, or at any time simply by unsubscribing. 

We do not bombard you. This is just a small, independent business, enjoying life, and working hard to promote escapes from the norm in Suffolk; that’s it. We’re really not out to hoodwink anyone!

We would love to stay in touch with you but it is your choice. We have built our database in a very professional and responsible way and continually given you the opportunity to not hear from us again. If you choose to ‘leave’ us then we wish you all the best for the future and hope you have enjoyed reading what we have had to say in the past.
