We're supporting the Neal's Yard Dairy and Jamie Oliver Save British Cheesemakers Campaign.
Britain’s cheesemaking traditions are at risk and need our support.
Farmers and producers face the prospect of throwing away large amounts of milk and cheese because of the huge drop in demand for their products. Soft and blue cheesemakers in particular are vulnerable because their cheeses can’t be matured and stored for long periods of time. Over the last 40 years the production of British farmhouse cheese has undergone a massive revival. If it is to survive, then it’s really important to support the makers of these often unique cheeses.
We've created a smaller version of the Neal's Yard Dairy Save British Cheese Selection - you will receive c600g of cheese produced by some of Britain's greatest small cheesemakers right now plus a box of the mini sized Peter's Yard Sourdough crispbreads.
If you wish to give this as a gift choose one of our gift boxes to put it in. You can also add any other item in such as beer, wine, chutney, salami - take a look at some ideas below.
Pitchfork Cheddar - UnPasteurised, Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet - 200g
An award-winning true Somerset cheddar - just won Best Cheese in Britain and 4th Best Cheese in the World at the recent World Cheese Awards. This is also one of the best cheeses we've ever smelt. A strong flavoursome cheddar with a savoury bite.
The epitome of British blue cheeses, in a class of it's own. Sweet, mellow blue, buttery texture with the most beautiful veining you ever did see.
Ogleshield - UnPasteurised, Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet - 200g
A versatile British raclette-style cheese, made with rich Jersey cow's milk. We love using it in the kitchen - it's great melted in a grilled cheese sandwich or on fried potatoes. But it's also a worthwhile addition to a cheese board. We'd even go so far as to say it has more depth of flavour than most French/Swiss raclette cheeses we've tried!
