This month's selection contains the three delicious cheeses listed below and weighs a minimum of 540g.

Mature Kirkham's Lancashire

milk type
Cow

ingredients
MILK, salt, rennet

coagulant
Animal Rennet

The longer maturation of these cheeses helps to create a more upfront, punchier flavour profile, whilst the texture is slightly drier but just as wonderfully crumbly as in the younger cheeses.

Sinodun Hill

milk type
Goat

ingredients
MILK, salt, rennet

coagulant
Vegetarian Coagulant

The yoghurty flavour of this cheese is complemented by a delicate, almost red-fruit flavour from the wrinkly, golden coloured rind. The texture of the paste is pleasantly light, almost whipped.

Minimum: 180g.

St Jude

milk type
Cow

ingredients
MILK, salt, rennet

coagulant
Animal Rennet

A small, soft, wrinkly cow’s milk cheese from Suffolk. Inspired by the French cheese St Marcellin, its savoury, rich and buttery flavour belies its luxuriously light, almost mousse-like paste.

**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.These are especially noticeable at present. They are perfectly safe to eat and do not negatively affect the flavour of the cheese. **

Made with raw cow's milk and animal rennet.
Minimum: 90g.

FAQs

Can I cancel my subscription?

Our cheesemakers make cheese to order for the Neal's Yard Dairy Subscription and, as such, subscriptions cannot be cancelled until after your first three deliveries. Following this, rolling subscriptions may be cancelled provided notice is given at least one week prior to your next delivery. Please contact us for further information.

How do the payments work?

The Neal's Yard Dairy Subscription costs £28.50 per month. Your first subscription payment will be taken when you buy the subscription on our website and your first delivery will be on the date that you select at checkout. Your second payment and delivery will be approximately one month after the first delivery. Subsequent payments and deliveries will continue monthly from then on.

how much cheese to buy?

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

how should i store my cheese?

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.

When will I receive my cheese?

Choose your delivery date at checkout and we will be in touch to let you know when we are preparing your order for dispatch. In addition our courier will contact you on the day of delivery with a one hour window slot. Please do not choose the redelivery option as your order will already have been picked up by the couriers and will remain in transit for an extended period. More information relating to courier deliveries can be found here. Your subsequent box will arrive approximately one month after the first, with each box arriving on a monthly basis thereafter. For example, if you receive your first box towards the end of July, your following boxes will arrive towards the end of each month going forward. Please let us know if you are planning to be away - we're always happy to deliver either side of those dates. https://www.nealsyarddairy.co.uk/pages/delivery-returns-feb-2020

Good quality but…

While the quality of the cheese seemed high, we found the blue cheese to be bland and the cheddar a bit too bland too. The goat cheese was the star but was disappointed with the other two cheeses.

Hi Su Kim,
Thank you so much for your feedback - it's much appreciated.
We're sorry to hear that you're disappointed with this month's cheeses. We aim to base our selections on the best cheese that is in season at that moment in time. If you find that anything is ever amiss, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll be happy to set it right.
All the best,
NYD
