We think of Westcombe as The Godfather amongst cheddars... nothing mild about it, a real flavour explosion. We get citrus throughout with the odd pop of hazelnut and caramel. It's as traditional as they come with the same recipe being followed for over 100 years - raw milk, clothbound. It's known in the trade as the five mile cheddar - because you're still tasting it five miles down the road. For us, this is usually the point where we're turning round, heading back to Westcombe Farm and buying more.

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

Westcombe Farm in Somerset has been making cheddar for over 100 years. The Calver family understand that the most important aspect of their process is milk. They credit the unique terroir and happy cows for the rich raw milk that produces their traditional cheddar.
