Caring for your cheese

Storing Your Cheese

 

Where to Store


Cheese is best stored in a fridge ideally in a cheese drawer. We advise keeping it in a seperate drawer to toehr items such as saled to ensure any bacteria from the other items does not transfer to the cheese. 

Temperature


Recommneded temperatures for all our cheeses is below 5c. Our harder cheeses such as our cheddars will be fine between 6-15 degrees for some time, at these temperatures they will conitnue to mature. Soft cheese such a blue must be stored at low temperates below 5c.

Wrapping


We advise wrapping opened cheeses in wax paper or clink film you can also place them in a seperate tub with a lid.
 

Shelf Life


The majority of our cheddars come with 4-6 months Best Before date on them. Our softer cheeses vary (please see the features section of each product) from 2-8 weeks.

Once you break the seal on your cheeses we recommend consuming them within 10-14 days. You can however freeze the majority of our cheeses too. They can be frozen for upto 6 months and keep their structure & flavour. We recommend defrosting in a fridge over night so the cheese holds its moisture.

 

Serving your cheese


To fully appreciate and enjoy your cheese at its best allow it to come to room temperature for an hour or so prior to serving.

We recommend a good port or wine and lots of accompaniments such as pickles, chutney, olives & breads.

Enjoy!
