Our cheeses are produced using artisan methods and therefore subject to seasonal availability and changes in shape/size etc.  All measurements and weights are approximate.  The reproduction of colours is as accurate as the photographic and production process will allow.
If a cheese that has been ordered is unavailable, in the first instance we will replace it with a similar cheese that is like-for-like in terms of quality, type, origin and price.  In the second instance, if this is not possible, we will contact you to discuss a replacement.
