Food in Community

Sharpham Cheese is proud to support the wonderful folk at Totnes-based Food in Community. Every week of the year, in all weathers, Food in Community’s volunteers collect and sort surplus fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and other nutritious, sustainably produced food, then deliver food boxes to individual households and to charities and community groups across South Devon.

They also glean surplus food directly from farmers’ fields, run cooking workshops and award winning ‘pay what you feel’ cafes, and cater at community events. More than half a million meals worth of perfectly edible, largely organic food has been rescued and placed back into the Devon community.

“Offering our clients (the majority experiencing financial difficulties) the opportunity to sample the most nutritious, top quality foods available such as your award-winning cheese is central to our philosophy and such a wonderful thing to be able to do.”

David and Chantelle, Food in Community.

Buddy Creative

Having heard good things, Sharpham made contact with Buddy Creative in late 2019 and asked them to help with a new design for Sharpham. The brief was to create packaging that evoked emotion, delivered bags of personality and reflected the natural environment that surrounds Sharpham Cheese. The design needed to appeal to a wide range of consumers and create a renewed sense of engagement with the brand.

Buddy Creative designed new labels with hand-illustrated imagery. Each label features a clear description of the cheese, tasting notes and serving suggestions.
Sharpham believes in taking wholesome dairy from its own herd and neighbouring fields, to produce cheese that’s the finest expression of the land. Buddy Creative wanted to reflect the simplicity of Sharpham Cheese’s products, so drew inspiration from the natural environment, and added rugged textures, vivid colours and playful imagery to evoke nature at its best.

The Academy of Cheese

The Academy of Cheese, is one of the most successful and popular purveyors of dairy knowledge in Europe, as they continue its mission to encourage a greater understanding of the art of cheese-making. The Academy of Cheese offers a Level 1 and a Level 2 course. Courses are attended by cheesemakers, cheesemongers, food writers, and consumers and since the lockdown, many people have joined the virtual courses. Sharpham hopes that it will soon be in a position to host the Academy’s Level 1 course at the dairy and maybe combine it with wine tasting with the fantastic wines from Sandridge Barton.
