The Independent Culture
IN CASE you cannot get the cheese you want from a specialist shop near you (and we list 20 shops which also send cheeses by mail order), we give telephone numbers of the cheese-makers where possible, so that you can contact them on the farm. They will be able to tell you about the shop nearest to you that sells their products.
