Father’s Day Cheese Box


Sunday 16th June is Father’s Day, and we’ve teamed up with local friends to create a perfectly tasty treat for Dads, Grandads and all the men in your life. Toast your father figure with this delicious box of artisan Sharpham cheese, crackers, Good Game charcuterie and local Devon-produced IPA from Ivybridge Brewing Co. Cheese & Cheers for Dad!

The Cheese – Sharpham Dad’s Favourites.

Sharpham Elmhirst (160g) Sharpham Elmhirst is made from Jersey cow’s milk and triple cream. It creates a luxurious, soft, mould-ripened cheese with clean and fresh notes on the palette when young (2-3 weeks), developing into a full-bodied, rich and gooey experience when ripe (4-6 weeks). Named after the family that contributed so much to the area, Elmhirst is pure dairy opulence. Diameter 8 cm x Height 3.5cm

Sharpham Rustic (200g): Sharpham Rustic is a ‘semi-hard’ cheese made with Jersey cow’s milk. It has a refreshing light tang that delicately balances the richness of the milk, with a lovely crumbly texture.

The Crackers-

Sharpham Original Sourdough Crackers (100g) – Handmade just down the road in Buckfastleigh using organically grown wheat, rye, and oat grains – freshly milled to create stone-ground flour then combined with sourdough starter honey, olive oil, and sea salt and slowly baked… ensuring we get that incredible crack. These aren’t uniform in shape or colour and they’re great piled high on a cheeseboard.

The Drinks –

We have teamed up with Ivybridge Brewing Company to find the perfect pairings for Sharpham Cheese. Ivybridge Brewing Co. is a social enterprise situated on the edge of the River Erme that provides paid work and training for people with learning disabilities. Great Beers, Changing Lives, was the perfect addition to our Father’s Day hamper.

Moorland Mosaic IPA—ABV 5.0% Moorland Mosaic is an India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed with Mosaic hops, which provide the perfect balance of a subtle bitterness with stone fruit flavours. Flaked oats add body and mouthfeel. A Gold winner at the Food Drink Devon Awards 23/24.

Erme Pale. Session IPA – ABV 4.0%. Erme Pale is a light and citrusy Session Pale Ale made with Citra and Azacca hops. Named after the River Erme, which flows just next to their brewery, it’s their best seller.

Pairing Suggestions:

We spent an afternoon with the team at Ivybridge Brewing Co, tasting all our cheese and their beer together in search of the perfect pairings! The result…

Elmhirst paired with Moorland Mosaic. The stone fruits in the Moorland mosaic bring out the luxurious creaminess in the Elmhirst cheese.

Sharpham Rustic pairs beautifully with the Erme Pale IPA. The IPA’s crispness complements and balances the creamy but lactic cheese. The team enjoyed all the Rustics with this light and crisp pale ale.

The Charcuterie: 

Good Game Mixed Charcuterie (90g) This charcuterie pack will contain three of the following: Bresaola, Pancetta, Lomo, Leg Ham, Coppa, Salami, or Chorizo. Good Game Charcuterie prides itself on using the best quality local produce to produce these delicious cuts of cured meat. The process, from raw to fermentation to slicing it up ready for deli packs, happens in their ‘ Charcuterie Room’ in Topsham.

They have spent years honing their skills and recipes to create the best-tasting charcuterie, and we think it goes incredibly well on a cheese platter and some delicious local beers.
