Mail and Shop Orders

We can send cheese to all the main urban centres and can pre-pack a cheese box for collection at the Arts Centre shop prior to Christmas.  Please see our New Zealand and International cheese pages for descriptions and prices.  If it’s too hard to decided then please take a look at our suggested cheese selectionsChristmas mail order form and shop pre-packed for collection forms can be emailed to us or dropped into the shop.
Last day for placing orders is Monday 17th December.

Other important things

Sorry but we can’t take baking orders in the week leading up to Christmas except for our existing standing orders.  All our baking freezes really well, so we would suggest stocking up earlier in December.  Also our lunchtime sandwich and coffee service is not really possible for that one crazy week – unless you want to wait in a queue for 30mins just to get your sandwich cheese!

Kirkham’s Lancashire

Really interesting and endearing little film about Martin’s favourite cheese, Kirkham’s Lancashire. Watch and marvel at just how ‘handmade’ with love this wonderful cheese is.
