Christmas Delivery Information
Cheese ordered for delivery after the 6th December 2023 will have a post-Christmas use by date. Where possible, we advise you to pick a delivery date as early in December as you can to guarantee courier availability.
We accept orders for Christmas delivery up to Tuesday 19th December 2023, however we recommend that you order early and choose a delivery date the week before to guarantee delivery on the day of your choice.
