Anne Wigmore set up Village Maid Cheese in the mid 1980s. She had previously worked as a microbiologist at the National Institute for Research in Dairying. She had developed a passion for cheesemaking whilst at the Institute and a love of Italian sheep’s milk cheese (Pecorino) whilst travelling in Sardinia. Working out of a small purpose-built unit in her garden she began experimenting in order to produce a sheep’s milk cheese of her own. To begin with Anne and her husband Andy just made a hard sheep’s cheese but by the early 1990s they were branching out into soft cheeses and Wigmore was born.
All our cheeses are cut fresh to order unless they are small individual cheeses produced in that size by the producer. We cut, wrap and pack orders on the day they are sent out on a next day service and will arrive to you with at least 14 days life. We have partnered with DPD as our trusted courier partner who will keep you updated with tracking information when they receive the parcel from us. Upon checkout you can choose the day you would like to receive your products and can also choose a premium morning delivery slot.
