Upon completion of your order, you will be asked to select a delivery date. We will always work to deliver to you on your date chosen but sometimes delays may occur. We will contact you if a change to the delivery date is required. At check-out, your delivery charge will be calculated.
All our products are packed in Cheese Cuisine boxes (unless you have ordered a giftbox or added a hamper to your order) with filling (bubble wrap where needed) and gel ice packs when required, to preserve the quality of fresh products.
Your cheese will arrive wrapped in speciality cheese paper and we recommend you refrigerate it as soon as it arrives. We recommend using your cheese within five days of purchase, however, many cheeses will last far longer. To serve, take your cheese out of the fridge, unwrap, and let it come to room temperature before serving (about an hour). To see more about taking care of cheese click here.
Wherever possible, we use environmentally friendly packaging, including recycled and compostable material. We are not big on paper waste; all the information on our products can be found on our website. However, if your order is a gift, select the option at check-out to include a personal message on a gift card with information letting the recipient know how they can find out about their products on our website.
Shepherds Purse Artisan Cheeses was established in the late 1980s as they wanted to create quality dairy alternatives for cows milk allergy sufferers. They have grown organically over the years. Having started by making cheese only from sheep’s milk, they extended their range to include cows milk and even water buffalo milk cheeses. Today, they are best known for their blue cheeses, Yorkshire Blue and Harrogate Blue, and for their sheep’s milk Mediterranean salad-style cheese, Yorkshire Fettle, and their sheep’s milk Mrs Bell’s Blue.
