Christmas Hampers 2013

Christmas hampers and cheese orders will be dispatched during the weeks of 8–10 December and 15–17 December this year. Local Nelson/Blenheim orders only 22–24 December. Please bear in mind that the earlier delivery is more reliable.

Perishable hampers need to be addressed to an address where there will be someone to take delivery, i.e. a business or work address. Please ensure your recipient is aware that a perishable hamper is arriving!

Delivery to rural addresses is often unreliable and is therefore not encouraged during warmer weather.

If you wish to discuss your requirements or place an order by telephone, please telephone Robynne on 0064 3 540 3034 or email

CheeseShop will be closed from 24–28 December 2014.

How to care for and enjoy your cheese

Hard cheeses tend to dry out in the refrigerator, so they are best kept in a small air tight container. Soft cheeses should also be kept in a Klick Klack or similar airtight container. If possible keep in a cool larder or safe instead of refrigerator.

Remember, always serve cheese at room temperature to experience the best flavour and texture. Remove from the refrigerator several hours before serving.

Fresh cut cheese is best eaten as fresh as possible. Leftover cheese can be used to enhance salads, quiches or vegetable dishes.
