About the Cheese

A delightful artisan cheese enriched with chives and garlic, perfect for a lunch with crusty bread and a cup of soup.

Sharpham Rustic is crafted using the sweet, incredibly rich milk of Jersey cows, giving it a bright sunny colour.

The semi-firm, crumbly paste is encased in an edible bloomy rind. Its wonderfully sweet and buttery flavour is further enhanced by chives and garlic, making it a fantastic savoury snacking cheese.

Enjoy Sharpham Rustic with light beers and white wines.


Cheesemaker: Sharpham Dairy

Celebrating 40 years of cheesemaking in 2021, Sharpham Dairy was founded by environmentalist Maurice Ash, who started making cheese to use surplus milk from his Jersey herd.

Today, the dairy is owned by Greg and Nicky Parsons, who continue the tradition of excellence with a passionate and experienced team led by Production Manager Peter Howarth. The team, boasting over 100 years of combined cheesemaking experience, ensures that Sharpham Cheese maintains its high standards.

Under the guidance of Greg and Nicky, Sharpham Dairy became the first UK dairy cheesemaker to achieve B Corporation certification in April 2022, meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance.
