Frequently asked questions

Is your cheese suitable for freezing?

Yes, you can freeze our cheese. Whilst freezing can change the texture of our cheese making it crumbier, we recommend that you grate our cheese first to preserve its great taste! Once frozen, ideally the cheese should be used with 3 months.

If frozen, grated you can use our cheese straight from the freezer into any dishes you’re cooking, alternatively you can defrost in the fridge and use within 24 hours.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Our current packaging isn’t suitable for curb-side collection recycling, but can be recycled at soft plastic recycling centres.

We are exploring a number of opportunities to come up with a packaging solution that is fully recyclable.

Is your cheese suitable for vegetarians?

All of our cheese is made using vegetarian rennet and as such are suitable for vegetarians.

However, whilst our Cavern Aged Cheddar with Penderyn Whisky doesn’t directly use products unsuitable for vegetarians, the whisky is stored in third party casks who have their own processes, so we cannot guarantee that this particular cheddar is suitable for vegetarians.
