Gunstone is a semi-hard unpasteurised, handmade, goat's cheese, produced locally near Crediton. The cheese, which is made to a Dutch recipe, has a light, buttery firm texture with a creamy, smooth and delicate flavour which increases with maturity.
Made by Norworthy Dairy Goats in Gunstone near Crediton, the herd was established in 1999 with 40 'day-old' kids! 12 months later they were producing milk. Over the following 2 years the herd was expanded to 90 milkers and in 2002 the milk was made into cheese.
Other cheeses in their range are the Norsworthy and Tillerton.
