Just to say thank you for the yoghurt culture. I have made my starter and a 500ml batch to eat already … It is absolutely fantastic!

Best wishes. Rebecca

This (100L rectangular) vat is the best investment for a growing cheesery. We are now working with 100 litres of milk, with plenty of capacity. It retains its temperature well (and we use 2 thermometers to confirm it), we also use it to drain large amounts of curd, the lids back up as presses where limit weight is required, the pasteurisation process is very simple, it cleans easily, and surprisingly it doesn’t take up a lot of space. If I had any criticism at all, it doesn’t have anywhere to place one’s thermometer, and you will notice that I have created my own design (patent pending). More than happy to recommend this vat to anyone, and happy to answer any questions from a potential buyer.

Cheese Slice with Oak Handle

It is good to know that I can buy your brand in this country when needed.  My son has described them as the Rolls Royce of cheese slicers!

Dear Sirs

Order safely received yesterday (Thursday) morning. The Dutch and Scandinavian cheese slicers are the best. Our first one was bought in Norway where every one used them and was great until it sadly detached at the head after many years use. The next best was a Fiskars, bought after trying a few rubbish UK made ones. These sold by yourselves are up there with the Norwegian tool for ease of use and quality of slice.

Best regards

Dear Jaap

Just received my cheese grater and delighted it is exactly the same as the one I had before which lasted years and bought in Holland.

Thank you so much.

Hi Jaap

I must apologise for not having thanked you for getting the ingredients over to Nepal so quickly.  They are now in a fridge at the VSO office and I will be back in Kathmandu soon to pick them up.
The soft cheese we made here a few months ago is selling well with the Expat community. I would consider doing a hard cheese if we could sort out storage, but getting the milk quality right must come first.
thanks again for all your help.
Best regards

Hello Jaap
Thank you very much for your very helpful relies to my query regarding cheese presses. I am an existing customer and have grown used to good service, however, the trouble you have gone to is quite beyond what you needed to do and far beyond what I expect nowadays, I am VERY impressed and will remain a loyal customer.

Kind regards,

H, just ordered some more cultures from you. Just wanted to say that I have now made some very successful Italian provolone, Stilton, pecorino, gorganzola, with your products. It’s also nice to know that you are on the end of the phone if I get stuck.

My next adventure is to make some swiss style cheese with holes!

Many thanks,

Hi, I’m really sorry to mess you about but I wonder if I can cancel this order. I bought the kit for my boyfriend but he has just ended our relationship. Hopefully it has not been dispatched and can be stopped from going out. If not can I return the kit and if so do you have a return address??? I’m really sorry for messing you about. the breakup has come out of the blue, many thanks J
