*GOLD* Our decadent and delicious Elmhirst won gold at the @fooddrinkdevon awards 🎉
Elmhirst is a mould ripened triple cream soft cheese, clean and fresh when young, rich buttery and gooey when ripe. Handmade with Jersey cow’s milk and double cream.
Check it out on our website or good cheese counters.
These babies will be on our website soon but you can buy a small Elmhirst square at the moment and *full disclosure* the middle photo is our 650g round, which is bigger with more of the same sensational squidge!
A beautiful, autumnal start to the day here at Sharpham. We’re still open for wine & cheese tastings, walks and farm shop until Christmas Eve. 10am-5pm.

Nicky P has been out and about in #London this week and indulged in some #sharphamspotting while enjoying a fabulous lunch at @lafromagerieuk with a tall, dark and handsome man (aka. son Dan).
Delighted to see both #ticklemore and #cremet on counter and with such expert, informative labels 💛

We’re delighted that Sharpham Savour has been awarded a one ⭐️ rating in the Great Taste Awards.
Savour is a semi-hard cheese that combines Jersey cows’ and Devon goats’ milks to produce a sweet, mellow flavour with a smooth texture achieved by washing the curds.
‘A delicious cheese that is frighteningly easy to eat.’
‘The gorgeous, golden, buttery colour and the aroma are instantly enticing.’
‘A beautiful looking cheese that has an even rounded flavour.’
It’s all systems go at @bayleyandsage Parkgate Street, London. Great to be sharing the Sharpham cheese love once again!
Come and taste some delicious Devon cheese with Greg today in this fabulous shop.

Greg & Nicky had fabulous visit and tour of @sharpham_wine’s new site just across the river to catch up on their progress towards their official opening there in the spring. What a beautiful place! Also managed to squeeze in some planning for our joint 40th birthday celebrations later in the year!

Three golden rules for pairing cheese and wine:⠀
🧀Combining is to do with tastes and textures⠀
🧀The whiter and fresher the cheese, the whiter and crisper the wine⠀
🧀The darker and stronger the cheese, the darker and heavier the wine⠀

Leg 14 LeJog (Thursday): THE FINISH!!
Greg and the team have made it to John O’Groats, riding over 1000 miles and climbing more than 40,000 ft in 14 days. Well done Greg, John, Ciaran and Jack - the Cheesy Rollers! Congratulations.
Here’s a message from Greg…
“Some of us set out as strangers bonded by ambition, and we may not have set any records BUT we have cycled over 1000 miles with smiles on our faces and shared good humour with all who we have met along the way. We are hugely grateful to our support network of loved ones and we hope we can inspire others to do LEJOG. Oh and thanks to ALL who sponsored us. You raised well over £3000 for two very great causes”.
#lejog2021 #johnogroats #congratulations #1000miles #challenge @charityforcecancer @medicmalawi #charity #giveback
Leg 13 LeJog (Wednesday): 74 beautiful miles today to get to Altnaharra, leaving 74 miles to go to John O’Groats tomorrow. What an amazing effort!
Their fundraising page has just nudged over £2500 which is a fantastic amount and will be shared by @medicmalawi Malawi and @charityforcecancer.
Greg and John visited the charity’s base in Malawi in 2018 to help with a building project and saw first-hand the amazing work that Medic Malawi do. They were humbled by their hosts’ kindness and hope, despite their many daily challenges, and any funds raised will be put to very good use.
FORCE run an amazing cancer support and information centre for patients and their loved ones who need physical, emotional, psychological and practical support. They missed out on their legendary fundraiser the Nello Bike Ride in 2020 and 2021 owing to the pandemic, so it would be great to help to get them back on track.
Thanks to everyone who has donated. If you want to give the boys a final push over the finish line here’s the link… or search ‘cheesy rollers’ on the home page.
Normal cheese related posts will resume very soon, but Leg 12 of 14 (Tuesday) involved 80 miles, mountains, four punctures, Ben Nevis, the Caledonian Canal, a swim in Loch Ness and blue skies (for a change!)
Good luck to Greg and the Cheesy Rollers for the final two days’ push to the finish on Wednesday and Thursday.

Leg(s) 11 LeJog (Monday): 52 very wet miles to Fort William today, so a shorter ride with dramatic Scottish scenery, interesting roadside flora (yes they’re looking at flowers in the long grass), and did we mention rain?! Three more days and Greg and the Cheesy Rollers will be at John O’Groats!
#lejog2021 #lejog #cheesyrollers #fortwilliam #rain #rainyday #legs11 @charityforcecancer @medicmalawi
Leg 10 #lejog (Sunday): Today was Jack’s birthday 🎉🍻🥳 so their wet and muddy 70 mile ride from south of #Glasgow had a very special birthday interlude on the bonny banks of #lochlomond. A fantastic lunch with a view at #colquhounsrestaurant, an impromptu swim and then the #CheesyRollers carried on cycling north, hugging the beautiful Loch for its entire length.
The team are stretching the ride to 1000 miles to celebrate raising over £1000 for each charity… @charityforcecancer Cancer & @medicmalawi
Leg 9 LeJog (Saturday): A big border crossing day today as the four began their ride up through Scotland 🏴 They battled wind and the first proper rain of the trip on an 85 mile super scenic ride up to Hamilton just south of Glasgow. A pit stop for supplies, a nice AirBnb and an England win 🏴 ⚽️ rounded off a long day. #cheesyrollers #homagetofromage #helloscotland #lejog2021
A sneak peek into the Sharpham Dairy office where Office Manager, Sarah (right) and Nicky Parsons (left) are keeping things on track, (along with Pete and the cheesemaking team) while Greg is making his way to John O’Groats by bike. Many of you will have spoken to Sarah over the years!

Leg 8 LeJog (Friday): Big climbs brought big views on the 65 miles from Kendal to just near Gretna. A detour took the Cheesy Rollers via Ullswater to bump up the mileage now they’ve committed to 1000 miles (with a swim in the lake!)
‘What a privilege to cycle through the Lakes & Cumbria’ (Greg)
Across the border next which is quite a milestone!

Brand new! Let us introduce you to our very own range of accompaniments.
Working with our Devon friends at Hillside Foods we have created a range of unique chutneys, jams and marmalades to complement our artisan cheeses.
These are lovingly made in small batches and are available from our online or onsite shop.
▫️Smoky Red Pepper & Tomato Jam
▫️Caramelised Fig & Sharpham Pinot Noir Chutney
▫️Apricot & Ginger Chutney
▫️Red Onion, Rosemary & Thyme Marmalade
Leg 7 LeJog (Thursday): Today’s 65 miles from Bolton up to Kendal were mainly fueled by cheese. Greg and The Cheesy Rollers called into the ‘Home of Lancashire Cheese’ @dewlaycheese and @cheese_shop_dewlay in Garstang.
Weather good, scenery great and with the border in their sights tomorrow it’s about to get epic! Gretna here they come!!
Another huge thank you to everyone who has donated. The team has been bowled over by your generosity and that of the people they’re meeting along the route.
