Named after the family that contributed so much to the area, Elmhirst is pure dairy opulence. Similar to a Vignotte, double cream is added to our Jersey milk making a mould ripened a triple cream cheese that is rich and mousse like when young (2-3 weeks old), developing into a full bodied, decadent and gooey experience when ripe (4-6 weeks). For company, a warm friendly baguette with a glass of Sharpham Estate Selection, the combination of the madeleine angevine and pinot gris grapes refreshing your pallet between each unctuous bite.

Double cream is added to our Jersey cow milk. The curd is only cut once then hand ladled and left to free drain in the moulds before turning. The cheeses are brined and turned daily for five days and then wrapped at 10 days old. Cheeses are finally sent out to wholesalers when they are 2 - 3 weeks old.
A full size round cheese will have a maximum shelf life of 2 weeks from the date of dispatch and 3/4 weeks for our wholesale customers. The smaller square cheeses have a shorter life as they will ripen faster. The squares will have a maximum of 12 days from the date of dispatch. Please specify if there is a particular day you wish to eat the cheese.
