Looking for a nice cheese collection, something you cannot get from a supermarket. Any suggestions/recommendations? (The OH's birthday is very soon).

    I googled 'buy a cheese board selection'.  Or try something else similar 'buy cheese online' etc.  Have a play.

    I have ordered from Neil’s Yard on line fir Easter treats for the family. Not cheap but excellent quality and not only helps a relative small UK business but also very small businesses that make the cheese and now due to no restaurants open are loosing most of their trade. I have also had good cheese from the Cheese Shed.

    We we ordered from Wensleydale Creamery Hawes. They have a lovely selection the portions were generous and postal cost was low.  Highly recommended

    Lots of cheesemakers are doing hampers right now. Suggest googling makers of his favourite cheeses. Might be cheaper than a cheese shop, farm shop or grocer.

    If they like Cheddar then have a look at Godminster.  They are a small company in Somerset that make organic cheese.  It is wrapped in wax so will keep.

    We have tried virtually Cheddar made in the West Country and this is one of the best

    Thank you everyone. I am surprised I haven't thought about it myself! I always buy flour directly from a mill, milk, meat, eggs, and vegetables from local (15miles) farms... Naturally, I should have thought of buying cheese from a creamery! Sadly our local cheesemakers (Fowlers) don't seem to sell to general public.

    Do a check on that. A lot of local small places who catered for the catering trade have had to move very quickly to selling to the public. Even our local creamery have opened up vacancies for milkmen which they never had to bother with before

    I heard about the monthly cheese club in a video recently.
