“The tasting was exceptional, the staff were so welcoming and their knowledge and passion for their product was incredible. They offered great advice on quantity, flavours etc but ultimately left us to make our own choices which was great (although the decision making was tough). They worked with our caterers and the cheese was delivered seamlessly which was important for us with so many other things going on at the time. The cheese went down very well by all guests and looked fantastic with a little work from our florist. We even had a little left over which we gave to family to take home and enjoy. From start to finish Neal’s Yard were incredible. Friendly, professional, passionate and with an incredible product. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone who loves cheese.” Mark Hall
“We thought we'd over ordered (10kgs including Colston Basset, Montgomery, Coolea, St Jude's, Riseley and Sinodum Hill) but it just about all got eaten ... evidently a ceilidh works up quite an appetite! Thank you so much for all the help & advice first choosing (and tasting) the cheeses to make up our cheese board and then with delivery etc. It all went down very well... literally.” Helena Waters
“We were really pleased with our cheese selection and our guests were very appreciative. Some raved so much about it that there are the first steps of a plan to set up a little cheese club & get one of your monthly subscriptions.” Carolynn Hillebrand
- At Neal’s Yard Dairy we have a communal kitchen. Every day we all take turns to cook lunch for each other. It is really rewarding and an important part of our company culture.
- Last year we sold the cheese equivalent to the weight of 50 and a half London buses.
- It takes ten litres of milk to make one kilo of cheese. Just think how many swimming pools full we help turn into cheese each year!
- The history of cheese is full of holes, but it's all interesting in its own whey.
- Before the First World War there were over 3,500 farmhouse cheese-makers in the UK. Nowadays, barely 100 are still making cheese.
- Cheese contains tryptophan, which improves your mood. Studies have shown that tryptophan can help to manage stress and anxiety – and that it could be as effective as therapy.
