It’s at this time of year that we like to stop for a while and reflect on all the good things that have happened over the past 12 months, in preparation for the year ahead. Chief among them is lovely feedback from our customers (well, everyone likes to be told that they are doing something right!), and letters like this one below, which gave us a warm, fuzzy feeling inside and put a big smile on our faces when it arrived last week.

I have just tasted some of your Vintage Organic Cheddar, and I simply do not wish to bother with any other sort of cheese for the rest of my life!!  It is absolutely delicious. I raise my glass of Merlot (I've only had one, promise), and offer huge congratulations in creating a taste sensation, and I take this chance to wish you, and your clearly dedicated team, a very Happy Christmas.

Best wishes from a deeply satisfied, and now life-long, customer.

Merry Christmas everyone – and in the words of Irving Berlin, “May your days be merry and bright!”
