Eating Lincolnshire Poacher is like watching HD for the first time when you always thought non-HD was absolutely fine. Before you know it, you cannot live without it anymore. We call Poacher The Cheddar Slayer because so many people we know who love Cheddar now call Poacher home. It is not hard to understand why. It gives you everything a great Cheddar should, but on top of that, another layer of deep burnt butter, nutty happiness that just makes you want to curl up in a ball and giggle. We only serve the Vintage Poacher because the extra ageing we feel just takes it onto another level of HD delectation, adding complexity and character as well as some lovely crunch. The incredible trademark smooth, lingering, nutty sweet aftertaste will make you want to cry.

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

Meet the Maker

Simon Jones made his first batch of cheese in 1992 with raw milk from his father's Fresian herd. From then, with his brother Tim's help, the dairy has grown and places great focus on limiting their impact on the environment with the installation of a turbine and solar panels
