Curworthy, a delicious handmade hard cheese, coated in a black wax, based on a traditional 17th Century recipe, with a slight nutty taste. This cheese is produced deep in the heart of the rolling North Devon countryside, with views over towards Dartmoor (where one of their cheeses is named after a Tor).
Curworthy is a full fat hard cheese with a creamy light buttery taste when young and developing into a full flavoured mellowness when aged. The curd after pressing overnight in traditional presses is then matured in special temperature controlled ripening rooms. No colouring or preservatives whatsoever are added - except salt which enhances the flavour and lengthens the cheese's life.
Other cheeses we stock in their range include the Devon Oke, Haytor and Meldon.
