Heckfield doesn't fit in a box. Well, we should clarify - it does fit in one of our beautiful, environmentally friendly cheese transporters, however, it doesn't fit in a cheese type box. It's perhaps similar to a cheddar but with added benefits - it's decadently creamy and buttery. This is thanks to the incredible Guernsey milk that makes Heckfield a serious rarity. Guernsey milk is like the Rolls Royce of cow's milk when it comes to cheesemaking, giving Heckfield an incredible richness, and striking yellow colour. Made by cheese wizards 'Village Maid', we're simply lucky to be one of the first distributors. There is no doubt that it'll turn out to be as popular as the rest of the VM line up.

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.
