Big cheese launch at the Apley Delicatessen Farm shop

Big cheese launch at the Apley Delicatessen  Farm shop Apley Farm Shop holding a special launch day this Saturday 23 July, on its delicatessen counter, offering free tasters of over 45 cheeses, 9:30-5:30pm.

Apley Farm Shop is excited to invite you to their new delicatessen launch weekend. Come & see their fabulous cheese counter which they have been expanding over the past few weeks, their new selection of olives, antipastis & nuts. Taste & hear about some of our delightful homemade products.

Lora Rogers, farm shop manager explained: “Plenty of cheesy tasters will be available outside including both our new & best-selling cheeses. Our staff have recently completed a cheese retailing qualification so plenty of our delicatessen experts will be on hand to answer questions and guide you through our cheese selections. Staff can help you with cheese care guidance, wine & food recommendations & advise you on new cheeses you will love based on your current favourites.”

Lady Harriet Hamilton, marketing manager, added: Seeing images of our new ‘wedding cheese cake’ on display is stunning – a fabulous 8 tier wedding cheese cake on our Deli counter for £229. We only need 1 month’s notice - so get booking for a very special cheese lover for or an eye catching, must-have talking piece for your special day.

The Apley Cheese madness doesn’t end there - why not pick up one of their baker’s handmade cheese scones from the shop - make sure you get in early to grab one warm! Or try some of the cheesy specials available in the Creamery Café. For the sophisticated minis, Pigg’s Playbarn will even be serving mini kids’ cheese boards!

On the butcher counter, check out some of our cheeses included in our butcher’s products. They will be doing a weekend special of chicken, brie & bacon sausages or a mouth-watering gourmet stuffed burger, stuffed with our bestselling creamy Shropshire blue.

In addition to the cheese launch, this Autumn, Apley Farm Shop is also holding 3 cheese tasting courses in November, January & February. Lasting 2 hrs & held in their Corn Loft Conference Room on Saturday mornings, the £35 price includes tasters of each of their cheeses mixed with a bottle of red & white wine, an Apley ale & a cider. Participants will benefit from a 10% offer in the shop on the day of the course.

These cheese days are great Christmas presents, for cheese lovers who prefer active presents.

Lord Hamilton explained “We know that Neal’s Yard Dairy & Paxton & Whitfield, a London based cheese shop, successfully run similar courses & many of our own Apley customers have shown interest, so it makes sense to offer them & so if the initial interest is followed up. “
