Delivery Information

We understand that it’s important to know when your order will arrive. We deliver every day each week (excluding Weekends, Mondays & Bank Holidays). You can choose any date, any month and any year.

All orders are delivered by DPD, your cheese is cut fresh to order, wrapped and packed by hand and delivered on the day you request. If you provide a mobile number and e-mail address when you place your cheese order, DPD will send you your delivery time so you know exactly when to expect it.

PLEASE NOTE – If you need to change a delivery date you MUST call us, do not contact DPD. You can change the delivery date up to 72 hours before the original delivery date.

We advise customers to leave instructions on where your order can be safely left if you are not going to be in – you will find a delivery notes box on the checkout page for this. If there is no safe place, DPD will leave it with a neighbour. As our product is perishable, all of our parcels are under strict instruction to be left safe or with a neighbour if the customer is out.

We suggest sending your cheese to a work address if you feel delivery is difficult or the consignment can’t be left safe (ideal for London-based address’).

If you are ordering for a gift or special occasion we advise to always allow an extra 24 hours to allow for any unforeseen courier delays.

On arrival of your cheese, open the box, remove the ice pack if there is one (these are included in warmer months and will gradually defrost during transit – this is normal) and put your cuts of cheese in the fridge to chill and firm up after being in transit.
