Neal’s Yard Dairy at Burghley Horse Trials


Our events team will be packing up two Neal’s Yard Dairy vans and heading to Stamford in Lincolnshire for the annual Burghley Horse Trials from Thursday 31st August –  Sunday 3rd September. It is one of our favourite shows and for the events team it marks the end of a summer on the road. A lot of work goes in to preparing and packing for a four day event.

Most important is selecting the right cheese to sell. Farmhouse cheeses can vary significantly between batches so it is important that we have tasted everything available to us and selected the cheese that we think the Burghley customers will like best. This year we will be taking some old favourites: Kirkham’s Lancashire, Appleby’s Cheshire and Baron Bigod. We will also be taking St Cera: a new cheese to the event.

Joining us to taste out their cheeses and answer your questions will be Simon Jones of Lincolnshire Poacher on Saturday and Joe Schneider of Stichelton on Sunday. If you’re at the show, come and taste some cheeses with us. If you aren’t, we will be sharing our experience on Instagram.
