The Truckle Truck hit the road in 2018. I’d spent some 13 years ‘learning cheese’ and discovering the amazing industry that I now have the immense priviledge to be a part of.
The Truckle Truck itself is a 1969 Citroen HY van – a few of the questions I get asked the most are: ‘Does it drive?’ (Yes, albeit rather slowly and steadily), ‘Is it left-hand drive?’ (Yes again, which can be fun in country lanes!) and ‘Does she have a name?’
Of course she does – introducing Susie.
Running what’s probably the smallest cheeseshop in the world means my counter is also rather ‘bijou’. The cheeses that get a spot are award-winning, rare cheeses, cheeses made by new cheesemakers and cheeses that have been made for centuries. They are, quite simply, the best of the best.
Where can you find us?
