Welcome to the Yourcounty Cheese Harp feature. We've been publishing local food and drink information including specialist Kent food retailers for over a decade. In that time our coverage has benefitted from a wide range of user feedback, both to add some value to our original listing and to suggest new entries to us. If you'd like to get in touch you'll find our contact details at the bottom of the page. More features can be found in The Kent Food Directory.
Where else in Kent can you find over 70 brilliant cheese under one roof, many made in the county. Most come from the high quality artisan traditions and have been recognised with national and international awards. The Harp is branded as; 'a shop for cheese lovers!' and that's definitely the experience you'll get if you visit Bobbie and Simon Akhurst in Sevenoaks. The shop stocks a very wide range of: cow's, goat's and ewe's cheese as well cheese related products. They run events and are happy to provide a personal service and address specific questions.

"What impresses me as a local food producer is how much of their stock comes from the South East of England. Without such independent operations small artisan food producers will become fewer and fewer and only those that service the supermarkets will survive. Ocassionally you will pay more for to buy local but in general you are buying a higher quality product where there is a relationship between the supplier and the retailer. The horsegate issue has shown can happen if we lose the local element of food production and retailing. If every every adult purchased just two or three locally produced food items from independent shops each week we could see a transformation in the quality and diversity of the UK food industry in a short space of time.
