We persuaded Nicky to be the guinea pig for our #MeetTheMakers series to introduce you to the small team behind Sharpham Dairy.
We asked how she ended up as a cheesemaker and what she does when she's not making cheese and more.
Two-minute read here:
Brie Tea? Cheese Tea?
What on earth do you call a fresh herby Rustic cheese scone, topped with a ripe squidge of Sharpham Brie and finished with a dollop of our Smoky Red Pepper Chutney?
As it’s #Wimbledon fortnight we’ve given a cheesy twist to a #Devon classic!
We’re here to help! Father’s Day is just around the corner. Order our Cheese & Cheers gift box and we’ll deliver it to Dad’s doorstep.
With beer and cider from @salcombebrewery and charcuterie from @goodgame.

Yesterday we raised a glass as the wine team said farewell to their base here. @SharphamWines has now moved to its new home across the river.
Cheesemaking continues here but this site is no longer open to visitors.
Watch this space though as we have exciting times ahead too!
Join our team! We're looking for a full-time Office Administrator to oversee the smooth running of company administration here at Sharpham Dairy. Click the link for full details and how to apply (or do a share with someone who might be interested)
Looking forward to welcoming lots of guests to our first virtual tasting of 2022 tonight. Greg and Tom are limbering up!

💛 You’ll find our Hearts with selected cheesemongers, plus we have just 100 on our website.
💛 We’ve put together a Valentine’s pairing of Brie Heart, a lovely @SharphamWines 2020 Pinot Rosé, crackers from @PetersYard & our own fig chutney.
Merry Christmas from Greg Big Cheese, Sarah in the Office and Pete Production… and the rest of the spectacular Sharpham cheesemaking team who couldn’t be persuaded to put on a hat!
Ronnie was the only Sharpham team member available to take part in our Christmas photoshoot, as it’s all hands on deck in the dairy (and paws are not well suited to cheese wrapping). So despite the 1000 mile stare he’s loving it, honest!
Show us your festive pets!
What better way to mark our 40th birthday than by creating a brand new cheese.
A creamy, mould-ripened cow’s milk #cheese, our new Sharpham Camembert is a unique combination of traditional, delicate Normand methods and our singular #SouthDevon terroir.
Cheese Twitter hive mind! We’re finding it tricky to find the 11-ish cm round wooden boxes for our new Camembert in the small quantities we’d need. Any other small cheesemakers got experience of sourcing similar? DMs open. Thanks in advance 🤞🏼
