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.

During checkout, you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. This is great if you're buying as a gift or are organising your cheese in advance. The cheese will be packed in chilled, insulated boxes (that look great!) and will always be prepared on the day it is dispatched. A few other handy pointers:

- We use DHL nationwide and Packfleet within the M25

- Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee.

- Your cheese will arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com
