The Book, Bucket & Cheese Company

The Book and Bucket Cheese Company was founded by Peter Morgan and has been in the works for several years. Peter was originally asked to develop cheeses with the purpose of making small handmade batches of the highest quality and supplying them to local restaurants and farm shows. The success of the cheeses has led Peter to slowly increasing production to supply selected outlets within the South West.

When Peter started to make cheese, he sought the advice of people that had between them over 120 years experience in the industry. They each said the starting point was to buy some books and read as much as possible. After that it is just “bucket science” and to keep playing until you make something you like – and you think someone will buy!

In January 2019, with a bucket full of recipes and ideas and the help of friends, Peter launched the Book and Bucket Cheese Company.

In April of 2020, amidst the first of many lockdowns for the UK due to the Covid19 Pandemic, a struggling local farmer asked for help with his milk surplus due to hospitality being closed. Peter worked hard to turn that milk into new cheeses and has since launched 7 cow’s milk cheeses.

Peter also used the time in lockdowns to collaborate with local Head Chefs and now has two cheeses made exclusively for The Pig Hotels and Restaurants and one made in collaboration with The Pig which can be found both on their menus and in our online shop.

Peter has won a swathe of awards, both as a Producer and for many of his individual cheeses. Three quarters of the range of cheeses have now been awarded one or more awards and The Book & Bucket Cheese Company was also awarded ‘Best Producer’ at the Dorset Food, Drink & Farming Awards in 2020.

In 2021, Shakespeare (a Brie type cheese made from sheep’s milk) was awarded a GOLD medal at the World Cheese Awards. The World Cheese Awards is one of the most prestigious Cheese competitions and in 2021, saw over 4000 cheeses enter from around the world.

Clare a Beau's Wax Company

A few words from Clare a Beau..

We are a small family business with a big heart; I founded Clare a Beau’s back in January 2020 offering botanical wax melts that I was making in the kitchen of my family home. Fast forward, I am now offering a range of interior fragrances and homeware accessories that are both affordable and luxurious.

Family is at the heart of everything that we do. In 2019, my middle son Bailey had to undergo stem cell treatment in a trial to reset his immune system. It was a hard time for us as a family so I knew that being close to home was the most important thing at that point, this is when Clare a Beau’s was born. I know, first hand, just how precious the moments we spend at home are, so over time, I have created a collection of interior fragrances that not only smell wonderful but are eco-conscious and vegan friendly.

My love affair with home fragrance started from a young age, I have always surrounded myself with beautiful scents and now, those scents tie me to very special memories. I love the four seasons but when creating a scent list for Clare a Beau’s, I used those memories I have to create innovative scents that can be used all year round so that we are always transported to our favourite time of year.

As Clare a Beau’s grows, I am now lucky enough to be working in my own lab at the bottom of my family garden, packaging up your scents and coming up with new ideas to grow this business. We now offer Signature candles, luxury botanical reed diffusers, letterpress boxed matches, bath and body products and natural tea lights. I am eternally grateful to our new and returning customers as you have enabled me to support my family, live my dream and constantly be surrounded by the scents I love.
