The prize - a bespoke Fine Cheese Co. hamper.
The wonderful prize, created by The Fine Cheese Co.


Please note: this competition has now ended, but thank you to every one who entered, and congratulations to our winner – Alison Barker, of Walsall in the West Midlands.


Summer may feel like it’s on its way out, but here’s a picnic you can always take into your Hartley Botanic greenhouse to enjoy.

Created by The Fine Cheese Co., as a prize for one of our lucky customers, they have put together a seasonal selection of cheeses and treats with something of a garden theme. Cheeses include ‘Flower Marie’, a creamy and delicate ewes’ milk cheese. ‘Figue à la Rose’, a crumbly and gentle goats’ milk cheese. ‘Burwash Rose’, a washed-rind cheese that is aromatic and full of flavour, and a piece of ‘Cornish Yarg’ wrapped in nettles.

The Fine Cheese Co. have paired these delicious cheeses with their Guava Fruit for cheese, and a packet of Natural Crackers.

To drink, they have included some luscious Van Nahmen Peach Nectar, and also some Rhubarb Nectar.

The sun is now shining!
