Is Quicke's cheese made using all your own milk?
Yes, at Home Farm we have a herd of 600 cows who produce all the milk that goes into our clothbound cheese.
How long will my cheese last?
Our trained team of cheesemongers will cut your cheese fresh ready for you to enjoy. We recommend that you consume the cheese within seven days of the date of dispatch. For more guidance see the best before date on the cheese.
How should I store my cheese?
All cheese needs to be stored in the refrigerator, below 8°C. To find out how to store individual cuts, please read our guide on cheese care.
What temperature is best to serve my cheese?
We would recommend bringing your cheese out of the fridge two hours before you are going to serve it, which will be long enough for it to reach room temperature - the ideal temperature at which to eat cheese.
