Fosseway Fleece [ Ewe Hard Veg Pas ]

This dense and waxy ewes milk cheese is a firm favourite at the local markets I attend. It has a sweet nutty flavour with a lingering depth of flavour which makes it rather special.

Sharpham Rustic with herbs [ Cow Semi-hard Veg Unpas ]
Sharpham, Devon

This is a beautiful semi-hard cheese with added garlic and herbs, made in a colander, which gives it a lovely space ship like shape. It is matured for 6-8 weeks giving a youthful cheese with a rich creamy texture. It is yellowy gold in colour with a gentle, mild flavour and a natural rind which forms during the maturation process resulting in a delightful white crust.
