In a Pickle, and Loving Every Minute!

We're in a pickle, and happy as heck about it! A few weeks back, we introduced our Ploughman's Sandwich, a happy marriage of cheddar and chutney wedged between two chunks of ciabatta. It's been such a bit hit, we've decided to send it out on the road! Now you can order a Ploughman's Lunch cheese & chutney selection from saxelbycheese.com, and we'll send lunch straight to your front door!

Ploughman's Lunch Selection

The ploughman's lunch is a revered repast in pubs and taverns all across England... We discovered it on a trip across the pond this summer and thought, why not bring this cheesy institution stateside? The traditional ploughman's lunch features a couple of hearty chunks of farmstead cheese paired with a sweet & savory chutney. Saxelby Cheesemongers has teamed up with preserves & pickles guru Kelly Geary of Sweet Deliverance NYC to bring you the finest cheese & chutney selection in town.

Each 'Ploughman's Lunch' selection contains a jar of Sweet Deliverance Spicy Green Tomato Chutney and three half-pound wedges of mouth watering fromage: Kunik, a buttery and decadent triple-creme cheese from Nettle Meadow Farm, Shelburne Farm's sharp, oniony, fruity two-year Cheddar, and Jasper Hill Farm's luscious, fudgy Bayley Hazen Blue. Not just for lunch, this selection of cheesy goodness is great fare for dinner parties, tailgates, picnics, and any other dairy-centric snacking occasion you can dream up!
