When the sun is shining, there is nothing better that an adventure with a beautiful picnic. This hamper is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries and treating your loved one on a special occasion.

- Stichelton 200g
Raw milk stilton-recipe blue cheese had been extinct for 18 years, until in 2006 when Joe Schneider and Neal’s Yard Dairy founder Randolph Hodgson embarked on a journey to challenge preconceptions of the traditional British blue. The special protected status of Stilton stipulates that it must be made with pasteurised milk, however the process of treating that milk removes a bounty of good microbes that give the cheese unique flavours and make it identifiable to a particular time and place. Joe uses only raw milk from the morning milking, very little starter culture and a very long make, 24 hours, allowing the natural flora in the milk to bring out the flavours. The curds are hand ladled, which gives a more delicate texture. Similar care is taken with maturing. Perhaps most importantly, each cheese is tested for ripeness before it leaves the maturing room. There can be a great deal of variation in how the cheese tastes from batch to batch, with Joe aiming for consistently of quality over consistency of flavour.
- Sharpham Brie 200g
On the glorious Sharpham estate, nestled amongst the banks of the River Dart near Totnes, Mark Sharman and his team take fresh raw milk from their herd of Jersey cows and apply it to a recipe that’s been unique to the creamery since 1981. The curds are hand ladled into moulds, turned regularly and then brined and left to develop a furry white coat. The end result is a Coulommiers style mould ripened soft cheese that is often likened to a Brie. When ripe, Sharpham oozes a creamy rich and buttery interior that is often imitated but never bettered. Mark often joins us here at Darts Farm to share his knowledge and passion for artisan cheese and English wine.
- Kirkham's Lancashire 200g
As the last remaining producer of traditional Lancashire in Britain - Graham Kirkham is the third generation to make cheese from his family’s small herd of Frisian cows in Goosnargh. Using raw milk, they practice a traditional two-day curd method which originates from a time when farmers couldn’t produce enough milk to fill a cheese mould in one day. The cheese is then wrapped in muslin cloth and traditionally buttered. We source this cheese from Neal’s Yard Dairy, who visit Graham regularly to carefully select each 6-week-old cheese. Neal’s Yard then mature the cheese for 10 months in their Borough Market shop.
ADD SOME SPARKLE TO YOUR PICNIC
- Pebble Bed Sparkling Rose £25
Crafted just a mile from here, our dear friend Geoff Bowen launched Pebblebed as a community project in 1999. His immense passion for sustainable viticulture along with the role of food and drink in our community meant that Pebblebed grew into the award winning vineyard it is today. Sadly, Geoff passed away in 2018 leaving his wife Anna and head winemaker Alex to continue to pursue his dream of creating exceptional English wines. A blend of Seyval Blanc and Rondo, this fizz is a wonderful salmon pink colour, with an excellent creamy mouse, delicate red berry and rose petal flavours balancing the fresh acidity.
