This Month's Cheeses

The Neal’s Yard Dairy Subscription showcases three different cheeses each month, connected in some way by a location, season, recipe or occasion. Our April selection celebrates the spring, with a selection of cheeses to help blow away the cobwebs of winter. With longer days, and long weekends, spring gives us more time for leisure, for idling and for wandering. So, pack up a picnic basket, and head outside to enjoy the sweet spring air, but maybe just double check you brought the umbrella. Old Roan is a delicious Wensleydale that is new to our subscription customers. Bright and lemony, it is the perfect cheese for sunny, fresh days. St Jude has a wonderfully creamy flavour, and is great with some tart cherries. Why not enjoy Westcombe Cheddar as part of a ploughman’s lunch? The perfect weekend snack. By savouring this cheeseboard, you are helping to support the makers of British and Irish cheese, preserving time-honoured cheesemaking traditions and fostering exciting new ones, too. We hope you enjoy them.

Yoredale Wensleydale

Yoredale is a delicately milky and buttery Wensleydale with a clean fresh flavour.


St Jude

A small, soft, wrinkly cow’s milk cheese from Suffolk. Inspired by the French cheese St Marcellin, its rich and buttery flavour coexists with a luxuriously light texture.

This cheese intentionally has a very thin mould rind. Because of this, wild moulds- spots of blue, green and grey moulds, often develop on the surface during maturation. They are perfectly safe to eat and do not negatively affect the flavour of the cheese.

About the Subscription Hub

The cheese we work with is strongly founded in a sense of community, from cheesemakers sharing recipes and tips, to the shared efforts of maturation between cheesemaker and affineur, to the departments within Neal's Yard Dairy tasting and talking about cheese together on a daily basis. The NYD subscription hub aims to bring this sense of community to our loyal subscription customers - a place to discover, discuss and delight in the cheeses you receive each month.
