Our broadest category. Generally these cheeses are the longest matured and have the smallest moisture content. Hard cheeses normally come either cloth bound, wax covered or with a natural rind. If the cheeses are not sold as individual units but by weight, we sell them online in multiples of 250g and will always send each cheese cut as one piece unless directed otherwise. If you require more than one piece of the same cheese, please state this in the comments box.

This semi-hard cheese from Cornwall is deliciously creamy under the rind and slightly crumbly in the core. It has a young, fresh, slightly tangy taste and as the cheese matures, the edible nettles impart a delicate, slightly mushroomy taste. The final product has an attractive, lacy pattern of leaves in blue and green, giving the finished cheese a unique appearance.
