Sharpham Rustic (formerly known as Devon Rustic) is a fabulous artisan handmade cheese from the Sharpham Dairy in Totnes. This semi-hard, unpasteurised cheese has been made with Jersey cow milk, giving it a wonderful buttery, fresh, creamy flavour (with a hint of lemon) developing into a slightly nutty flavour as the cheese matures. A wonderful addition to any cheeseboard, great with a ploughmans and served with runner bean chutney.
The Rustic, after being hand moulded into baskets, is drained for 48 hours before being dry salted by hand. As the coat of the cheese grows it is rubbed by hand to form the thin natural rind and turned weekly, After maturing for around a month the cheese is ready for sale,
A winner of many awards including Gold at the British Cheese Awards 2014, Bronze at the Taste of the West Awards 2014, Gold at the Global Cheese Awards 2013 are to name a few!
