This Month's Cheeses
The Neal's Yard Dairy Subscription showcases three different cheeses each month, with each month's selection linked by a location, season, initiative or occasion. The August selection contains three traditional British cheeses linked to different areas of England by name or tradition. Together, they make a perfect picnic trio to celebrate the warmer weather with friends and family. Each of these delicious cheeses are just at home in a recipe as on a cheeseboard. Your ongoing support of British cheese plays a vital role in helping to support family cheesemaking businesses and preserving time-honoured cheesemaking traditions.

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.
