King Charles appeared in high spirits this afternoon when he visited Ulceby Grange Farm in Lincolnshire.
The 74-year-old monarch smiled as he happily shook hands with staff working at the shop on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
The family farm has been producing Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese since 1918.
For the engagement, the newly crowned King wore a beige suit with a red and navy striped tie.
To begin with, Charles spoke with Simon Jones, who runs the company with his brother Tim, before the two men ventured inside.
King Charles was all smiles when he arrived at Ulceby Grange Farm on the Lincolnshire Wolds this afternoon.
During his visit, Charles learned about the company’s pioneering green practices, which is a cause close to the monarch’s heart.
In recent years, the Lincolnshire farm has installed a 275kwh wind turbine and 50kwh of solar panels.
They also use a straw pellet boiler to heat the milk, which is a greener process and has saved the company the use of 20,000 liters of oil each year.
In addition to this, the farm also feeds their cows crops grown on their farm in an effort to be more sustainable.
Lincolnshire Poacher uses unpasteurized cow’s milk and is generally left for 18 months to develop a tangy-sweet flavor.
All milk produced on the farm, except for a small amount bottled and sold at Farmers Markets, is made into Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese.
King Charles has passionately spoken about the importance of protecting the environment for the past 50 years.
In 2020, the King admitted that people thought he was “crazy” when he began speaking to the Wales Countryside Steering Committee about the importance of protecting the environment.
King Charles was pictured talking to farmer Simon Jones when he arrived for his organic business tour.

Tim and Simon Jones were seen this afternoon taking King Charles on a farm tour in Lincolnshire.
The brothers’ cheese is stocked in more than 100 farm stores across the country, and they also have experience making butter.
The Lincolnshire farm has been run by the Jones family since 1918 and is now in its fourth generation.
At the age of 21, Charles delivered his first impassioned speech about his personal concern about oil pollution and single-use plastic.
He also recounted how, as a teenager in the 1960s, he was concerned with the destruction of trees, wetlands, and habitats, as well as “the white heat of progress and technology to the exclusion of nature and our environment.”
In his 1970 speech, Charles highlighted a problem that has become an illustration of humanity’s threat to nature.
He then said: “When you think that each person produces about 2 pounds of garbage a day and there are 55 million of us on this island using non-returnable bottles and indestructible plastic containers, it’s not hard to imagine the mountains of garbage we’ll have to deal with somehow.”
