You can select delivery dates up until 23rd Christmas. During Christmas week your cheese delivery could arrive +/- 2 days outside of your preferred delivery date. Your cheese will always be cut and wrapped the day it is sent out and you will get a delivery notification when your cheese is prepped, with tracking information when your cheese is on it's way.

Delivery is FREE and it comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee. If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your festive cheesegeek delivery.

Meet the Maker

In 1979 Helene and Dick Willems decided to start making cheese from milk produced on their small farm in the mountains of Coolea in Co Cork, Ireland. After quick growth and popularity, their son, Dicky, became the main cheesemaker in 1993 and still is to this day.
