It is mould-ripened cheese. Firm, rich, and creamy when young, softening with mushroomy notes and a chicory finish with age. Awarded Platinum at the Food Drink Devon 2023 awards.
Ticklemore Goats Cheese 230g Wedge (V) (P): Sharpham Ticklemore goat’s cheese is made from pasteurised Devon goat’s milk. It’s a semi-hard goat’s cheese with a beautiful stark white colour and crumbly texture. It has delicate subtle herbaceous hints on the palate. Awarded Gold at the Artisan Cheese Awards 2023 and 2022 World Cheese Awards- Gold medal. This is also excellent to cook with.

Sharpham Rustic 200g (V) (P) 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.
ACCOMPANIMENTS- THE CRACKERS & PASTA
For accompaniments, working with our Devon friends at The Fresh Flour Company we have created a range of great-tasting crackers to perfectly complement our artisan cheeses here at Sharpham, within this box you get to try our Rosemary & Sea Salt crackers. Along with some artisan pasta, also made by Fresh Flour.
Rosemary & Sea Salt Sourdough Crackers (100g) (V) These Sharpham crackers are handmade in Devon, using organically grown wheat, rye, and oat grains. These grains are freshly milled creating fresh stone ground flour. The flour and mixture of sourdough starters are combined with locally produced honey. Olive oil, some of which has had rosemary steeped in it for several weeks. Sea salt of which 15% is Devon Sea Salt and freshly chopped locally picked rosemary leaves. Our crispbreads aren’t uniform in shape or colour, each batch is individual. They’re great pilled high on a cheeseboard for people to share and crack to their desired size and shape before enjoying some delicious Artisan Sharpham cheese.
Fresh Flour Casarecce Pasta (500g) Made with freshly milled ancient and heritage wheat from UK fields. Ground and milled in Buckfast just 9 miles from the Dairy. This gently twisted pasta is perfect for ragus and creamy, cheesy (of course!) sauces. Pasta needs to be boiled briefly and keeps cooking when warm.
