Can you accommodate persons with dietary restrictions such as vegetarians, vegans or people with food allergies?

The main focus of the day is of course cheese and the majority of those cheeses are made with un-pasteurised milk and traditional (animal) rennet. We will always endeavour to accommodate vegetarians - with showing a variety of vegetarian rennet cheeses - as long as we are made aware in advance.  Please also let us know if you don’t drink alcohol as we will tailor the event to suit.
