The Deli Counter
Our Deli Counter stocks
A large selection of artisan cheeses and charcuterie
Our cheese counter is known for the superb quality and variety of cheese on offer.
We are proud to work with Neal’s Yard Dairy who supply us with hand selected and matured artisan cheeses from around the British Isles. Neal’s Yard work closely with the cheese makers advising and helping them produce the finest examples of British territorials and as affineurs, they often have better examples available than the producers themselves.
Continental specialities from across Europe, are sourced from a variety of importers and producers and we have a direct relationship with our Italian supplier Luca Castraberte and his team in Umbrialand. Luca travels the length and breadth of Italy finding cheeses and charcuterie many of which are unavailable elsewhere in the UK.
Sample our cheese
Vacherin Mont D’Or is currently tasting divine and is available from the deli in the Farm Shop. This seasonal cheese is only available from October to March and is very popular at Christmas.
Vacherin Mont d’Or is made with unpasteurised cow’s milk from the Franche-Comté region of France. It has a rich sweet flavour with grassy undertones. Vacherin is best served at room temperature so that the flavours and aroma can develop. It can also be baked with rosemary and garlic creating a fondue like texture. This is perfect as a dip with crudités.
The cheese is packed in a circular spruce box which both flavours the cheese and keeps it in shape as it can be very runny when ripe.
