We're excited to announce the arrival of a brand new cheese counter & tasting room at Home Farm, set to be unveiled at a tutored tasting event this Saturday. Replacing our Farm Shop, the Quicke’s Cheese Box will put cheese centre stage, with the new store focusing on cheese from the South West, along with a carefully curated selection of accompaniments.
Mary Quicke explains: “Cheese is what we do best here at Quicke’s, so it felt right for us to renew our focus on this and provide a destination retail outlet for cheese lovers. From our involvement with the Academy of Cheese to our work with international organisations such as the American Cheese Society and the World Cheese Awards, we’re driven by a desire to educate consumers on the many benefits of buying artisan cheese – with nutrition, sustainability, complexity and diversity all on the agenda – and the Quicke’s Cheese Box will be the perfect setting for this, both at Home Farm and online. We’re lucky to be surrounded by world-class cheesemakers in the South West, so it’s an honour to be showcasing so many of them alongside our clothbound cheddar, telling the stories of people and place that are so unique to each cheese.”
The Quicke’s Cheese Box will open its doors for the first time on Saturday 25 January, with Quicke’s Ambassador, Stuart Dowle holding tutored tastings from 10.30am until 2pm.
