A Ploughman's Lunch Gift Box ("Hamper" in Great Britain) is inspired by the classic British lunch during harvest season. Though most Brits are not out harvesting the fields, it has continued to be a popular picnic lunch or gastro-pub menu item. We curated some of the traditional classics as well as modern fare. Enjoy! These delicious British favorites come packaged in a gift box, no hamper.

Barber's Vintage Reserve Cheddar: Made by the Barber family on Maryland Farm in Ditcheat, Somerset for six generations (only 13 miles from the village of Cheddar itself and protected under the PDO certification). Aged for two years, Barber's 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar has a smooth texture, with both sweet and savory notes.
Alexian Campagne Pâté : This rustic pork pâté is the perfect match for Barber's Cheddar and our sourdough bread, comfort delivered.
Branston Pickled Onion is a form of pickled relish which is extremely popular in Southern England. It contains an assortment of mixed pickled vegetables, blended with various spices in a thick brown sauce. Fig Jam: A sweet accompaniment to lighten the flavor profiles of the pâté, cheese, and pickled onion.
Tillen Farms Pickled Green Beans: Getting their name from the dill seasoning used in the brine, these pickled green beans are as fun to eat as they are to say. We have high standards for the beans we use, accepting only the straightest to be cleaned, trimmed, blanched and hand-packed in jars. Crunchy and delightfully sour, these beans are perfect for providing a satisfying zing to all kinds of charcuterie boards.
DLM Artisan Sourdough Bread: One of our most cravable breads...this is the loaf with the blistered, bubbly crust and distinctive, tangy flavor. We don't make ours overly sour; we think you will find it one of the most balanced in flavor you will ever try. We use only organic flour, sea salt, and water, along with our own "mother," which is the naturally fermented, watery dough-like mixture where the sourdough culture lives and breathes. This culture is good for your health, much in the same way yogurt is.
Walker's Shortbread Cookies: Crisp, buttery, crumbly and addictive, these cookies are the perfect balance to these rich and savory flavors. Made in Great Britain.
Fig jam: Something sweet to accompany the richness of the Pâté and sharpness of the cheddar.
