Did You Know.... Reputed to have been made since Roman times in Chester, Cheshire Cheese is Britain's oldest named cheese. Legend has it that a Cheshire cheese-maker was put to death by the Romans for refusing to tell them how to make it. In the 16th century it was said to have been the favourite cheese of Queen Elizabeth I. Cheshire Cheese is a crumbly, tangy cheese with a nutty flavour. The salty flavour comes from the salt springs that run under most of the county. The salt enters the pasture land and thus into the cows' milk from which the cheese is made.

Sending to the EU – CURRENTLY SUSPENDED
Due to unexpected events surrounding Brexit and the trade deal between the UK and the EU we have had to suspend the sending of any parcels to the EU. The reason for this is that the EU now requires an EHC document with every consignment sent into the EU. This is a Veterinary Surgeon issues health certificate costing £180.00 each. This is normally only a requirement for wholesale bulk shipments to any country, all non-EU countries have an exemption for personal consumption. The EU however does not have this arrangement and therefore both a pallet of cheese and a single cheese now require a health certificate. We are publicly fighting to change this situation and we very much hope that common sense prevails and freedom of choice for consumers is restored.
