Delicious Cheeses made the old-fashioned way

wildes-cheese-25-nice_100g_box_largeWe know the films fans like things done properly, even if it takes a little bit longer, which is why we've teamed up with award-winning artisan cheesemakers Wildes Cheese, whose traditional cheese-making methods may be a little slower but are well worth waiting for.

Using the creamiest milk from a single herd of Jersey cows, they lovingly produce both traditional cheeses and exciting, original recipes, from the lightest and most delicate to the ripe and runny. Hand made and slowly matured, we are sure Mr Page would approve. Click here to see more delicious cheese selections
