The Annual Ceremony of Christmas Cheeses

I think we have been providing cheese for this ceremony every year since we started cheese making and it’s one of the things we really love doing!

The Annual Ceremony of Christmas Cheeses has been taking place for more than 300 years, with Chelsea war veterans being supplied with a wide range of cheeses at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Here’s a bit of history about the ceremony http://www.history.uk.com/history/christmas-cheeses-chelsea/

And here’s some old Pathe footage http://bit.ly/1yjE9GV
