Our handcut cheeses are wrapped in waxed paper and labelled with the name of each cheese plus we add an ice pack for all chilled items to maintain the correct temperature during transit and where necessary we pop bubble wrap around this too to protect the rest of the products and packaging. All our cardboard packing is from a local supplier using sustainably sourced materials and is fully recyclable.

To help us to help you, please ensure at checkout that you give us accurate delivery information including your postcode so
we can arrange for your parcel to be delivered safely. We cannot be held responsible for any parcels not being delivered if incorrect/incomplete delivery information is given. We also recommend that you give us the recipient’s telephone number just in case the driver has trouble finding an address so that a quick call can be made.

You will receive an e-mail from us to confirm receipt of your order and another to let you know that we have dispatched it, which you’ll then be able to track.


We recommend that you select a delivery address where your order can be received by someone to enjoy maximum quality of your purchase from Johns, particularly the chilled items eg our local clotted cream, cheeses, milk & sausages, which will benefit from refrigeration upon receipt. All orders delivered by our local courier to home or work addresses require a signature at point of delivery anyway.

If the delivery service is unable to obtain a signature, a card will be left so that a re-delivery or collection from a local depot can be arranged. Please note that unfortunately we cannot be held responsible for any parcel that is not received by someone on delivery.

We have used Royal Mail & our local courier service reliably for our Devon clotted cream by post for many years, however, there may be a rare occasion where it is outside our control that you do not receive your delivery eg transport breakdown, adverse weather. Do let us know as soon as possible if your package does not arrive on the specified day and we will do our very best to correct the problem.


We offer secure online payment through Paypal which accepts all major debit and credit cards. A Paypal account is not necessary for payment. We ask you to create an account with Johns online so that you can sign in securely each time and store your address details making it quicker for you to place future orders. For security reasons, your credit card details will not be retained by our system and we assure you that your personal information will not be shared with anyone else other than for the purposes of delivering your order!

Your card will be debited immediately upon purchase.


Your custom is valued by the team at Johns so in providing your e-mail address when you set up your online account with us, we will then e-mail you with exclusive & seasonal online offers at Johns.


Your order will be hand packed with care by one of our team and we use professional couriers for delivery to ensure it reaches you in tip top condition. However, if you do find that an item has been damaged in transit or is the incorrect item, please notify us by e-mail ([email protected]) within 24 hours of receipt of your order so that we can rectify the problem with you.
We have selected reliable delivery services and may need you to photograph or return the item back to us in its original packaging. Please note, the return postage costs are the purchaser’s responsibility.

If goods are returned to us via the courier following unsuccessful attempts at delivery and where delivery instructions have been met, then understandably no refund will be made.


You have the right to complain if you are unhappy with the service or goods provided. Please email [email protected] and we will do our best to resolve your issue.


The delivery charge covers delivery to one address so if you would like to send items to more than one address then please place separate orders for each. This is often the case for sending our local clotted cream,
homemade brownies & hampers as gifts to friends and family.


All products listed online are subject to availability and due to the production of artisan cream & cheeses from small producers there may be rare occasions where they are not available. If this happens we would advise you, so long as you have given us your e-mail at the checkout, or we would send you an alternative product(s) to the same quality & value.


We do our best to cut the cheese accurately, however, with this being done by hand very occasionally the weights may not be totally precise.


Please note that some hampers contain alcohol and that alcohol is sold via this site. The minimum age for buying alcohol is 18 and it is illegal to buy alcohol if under this age and also illegal to buy it for those under 18.
