The Book and Bucket Cheese Company hand make award winning artisan cheese in the heart of Dorset from both sheep and cow's milk. All their milk is sourced locally, collected within 24hrs of being milked and is made into cheese that day. Wordsworth is their cow’s milk Gouda style cheese with a striking yellow colour and rich buttery texture. Although Gouda in style, it has typical nutty alpine notes. Pure poetry in a cheese. (Pasteurised, Vegetarian, Cows milk)

Richard Hodgson started making cheese in Queen Bower, on the Isle of Wight, in 2006, with the aim to create a variety of small scale, handmade cheeses for the island. Shortly afterwards, he started winning awards, and now takes just about every drop of milk the farmer can give him. The Isle of Wight Soft is a soft white surface mould ripened pasteurised cheese. It fits nicely in between the brie and camembert brackets. Consume when young for a firm textured sharp, lactic flavour, or keep in the fridge for a few weeks and ripen it yourself for a more Camembert type cheese. (Pasteurised, Vegetarian, Cows milk)

Stoney Cross is made by Mike Smales at Lyburn Farm on the northern edge of the New Forest. Stoney Cross is different to the other gouda-style cheeses that Lyburn make in that it is mould-ripened, in the style of a Tomme de Savoie, and matured for around eight weeks to give a young, mild and creamy cheese with sweet flavours and an earthy finish. Winner of a gold medal at the 2021 World Cheese Awards (amongst many more prizes), it is named after the World War II RAF and US Air Force air base located two miles south of the farm. (Vegetarian, Pasteurised, Cows milk, (contains egg))

The cheese needs to be stored in an air-tight box at the bottom of your fridge (this stops your cheese from drying out and becoming tainted by other fridge smells!). Hard cheeses will last for up to 2 weeks, soft cheeses will last for a week. For more information please see our FAQ's page.
