Our original wheatcheese and proud winner of the Vegan Cheese Co Best Vegan Feta award 2020, is a delicious, dairy free, plant-based alternative to cheese that’s nut and soy free.

It’s also free from artificial additives and flavourings, stabilisers, emulsifiers, gums and thickeners.

Handmade in the north of England, each original wheatcheese is fermented for at least a month.

Herbie’s Homemade original wheatcheese really tastes a lot like cheese. With a light, fresh, slightly salty tang and a texture that’s firm-crumbly, somewhere between a Lancashire and Cheshire, some might say that’s about right for a cheese made in Greater Manchester!

Original wheatcheese tastes great with chilli chutney on a cracker or crusty baguette. Try grating over pasta in place of parmesan or as a topping for pizza.

Ingredients:

Wheat, refined coconut oil* & sea salt.

*the organic coconut oil we use has been steamed gently to remove the taste and aroma of coconut.

Garlic wheatcheese is infused with garlic. Chilli wheatcheese is infused with red chillies.

Recipe suggestions – wheatcheese

Hot:

  • Sauté wheatcheese in our very own organic Spanish fermented garlic until crisp on the outside, soft in the middle and bursting with flavour. Serve with a green salad, pitta and guacamole. Garlic can be added as an optional extra.
  • Slice, drizzle with oil and cook as a pizza topping;
  • Blend with a little oat milk, a dash of optional vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper and heat. It will turn into a creamy cheesy sauce to dip or pour over burrito.

Cold:

  • Try grating wheatcheese over black bean chilli for a tasty vegan fajita.
  • Sliced with chilli chutney & crackers on a vegan cheeseboard.
  • Crumble into a baguette with salad for a quick and healthy lunch.

Delivery

Where we deliver

We deliver across the UK (excluding the Channel Islands). Our prices include the cost of standard delivery across the UK and/or express tracked delivery to most of England and Wales. Additional charges may apply for express tracked delivery to other parts of the UK.


Standard delivery

Where the product price includes standard delivery charges, this means the cost of second class delivery by Royal Mail of small parcels under 2kg in weight to anywhere in the UK, excluding the Channel Islands.

Ambient, non-chilled items under 2kg will be sent by standard second class post (this usually takes 3-5 working days), or on a tracked 48 hour Royal Mail service. Tracking details, where available, with an estimated delivery date are provided as soon as possible after the items are shipped.


Tracked delivery

Perishable items will be sent by express tracked delivery by DHL, Royal Mail or DPD. This currently usually takes 1-3 business days from dispatch. Tracking details with an estimated delivery date are provided as soon as possible after the items are shipped.

Where the product price includes express tracked delivery, this means the cost of tracked express delivery by courier (usually DHL) to the UK excluding the Channel Islands and also excluding the following postal areas:

FK* Falkirk
HS*Harris
IV*Inverness
KA*Kilmarnock
KW*Kirkwall
PA*Paisley

Couriers charge more to ship our products to the above postal areas. If you require delivery to one of these areas we will need check with the courier to prepare a bespoke quote. Please use the contact form to contact us so that we can verify the cost of postage with the courier before you place an order. For parcels weighing under 2kg Royal Mail Tracked 24 is likely to be the fastest and cheapest service. For parcels weighing over 2kg, DPD is likely to provide the next most economical service.

If you decide to go ahead with the quote, a credit of £5 will be added to your charges. Therefore, should the fee for postage from, say DPD, be £16, for example, you will pay an extra £11. And if the fee is £7.80 with Royal Mail you will pay an additional £2.80.

We aim to have your delivery ready for dispatch within 2 working days of receipt of your order.


Tracking

Once your order has been posted (if an express delivery service is applicable) we will provide a tracking number by email.

From that point it is your responsibility to track your item and either make sure you or someone else on your behalf are at home to accept delivery, or arrange a redelivery or collection from the courier.

If you do not take delivery, within a reasonable timescale or 1-2 business days, we cannot replace items that may have spoilt as a result.


Items in transit

Our products are resilient to minor fluctuations in temperature and humidity in transit. 1-3 business days in transit in ambient temperature should not cause spoilage.

In warmer weather, we may pack our products in reusable ice sheets for protection.

Upon receipt of your order please note the storage instructions and place items in the refrigerator where instructed.

At peak times, for example Christmas, it is possible that items will take longer to arrive, even when you pay extra for express delivery.

Perishable items that have not been delivered within 7 business days will be replaced. However, please note that this does not apply when tracking details have been provided and delivery has been attempted, but you were not at home to take delivery.


Returns

When we accept returns

Our products are perishable and like all food products, for safety, they are non-returnable unless they are damaged or faulty.

If they are damaged/faulty on receipt, we ask that you take a photograph of the product/s (unopened preferably)  and contact us without delay by email to hello@herbieshomemade.co.uk

We will replace any products damaged before receipt by you, without hesitation, providing we are notified upon receipt and, in the case of external damage to the product, before the item is opened.

Please take note of the storage instructions of your product. We cannot offer refunds or replacements in the event of your failure to care for your items in accordance with those instructions.


Packaging

What sort of packaging do we use?

All our packaging is fully recyclable/compostable.

Our boxes are made from mostly recycled cardboard.

Parcel filling is made from paper and/or starch based material.

Our vacuum seal bags are compostable.

Packaging:

Wheatcheese wedges are vacuum packed in a 100% compostable vacuum bag.

Cabbaja and wheatcheese melt are packaged in a glass jar with metal lid. Both are widely recyclable.

We use recycled/recyclable carboard postal boxes and shredded paper to pack the boxes.

We may also reuse any packaging such as bubble wrap that we have received on incoming goods from time to time.

We recommend that wheatcheese wedges are kept chilled and eaten before the best before date on the outer packaging.

Depending upon temperature and humidity, fermented products may last longer than the minimum best before date, as long as they are unsealed and refrigerated. However, we cannot guarantee this.

Once opened wheatcheese wedges must be kept tightly wrapped in the fridge (preferably in an airtight container) between use to prevent spoilage and will taste best if eaten within 5-7 days.

Wheatcheese melt may be stored in a cool dry place prior to opening. Once opened, keep refrigerated and eat within 5-7 days.

Chorizo pastes may be stored ambient until they are opened, after which they must be refrigerated

Wheatcheese wedges will generally have around 3 weeks shelf life from dispatch. Melt and chorizo pastes will generally have a best before date of 1-3 months on dispatch.

    Amazing vegan cheese. Complex flavours that are so tasty. Finally a good vegan cheese is out there!

  2. Rachel Ryder

    Amazing ! Best vegan cheese . Proper cheese . ?

  3. Harry Williams

    Nice vegan cheese. I?ve had the potato cheese a few times.

  4. Marcelle Samuels (gifted cheese)

    First time I’ve had an alternative to cheese that tastes, feels and can be used like cheese. Can’t wait to get some more

  5. Mila

    Such a great nut free vegan cheese.. even the texture feels like crumbly cheese. I am so happy I found this! Most nut free cheeses that I have tried do not taste like cheese at all (like the ones you get in supermarkets); this one tastes like cheese!

  6. Jane (review received by email)

    The sourpresses are absolutely gorgeous! All three taste fantastic and even T has got into them. Texture is great.
    I don’t like whiskey so I wasn’t sure if I was going to like that one but it’s such a subtle hint and I thought helped to round the flavour. Delicious!
