Sharpham Rustic Chive and Garlic
Urban myths speak of the day when the cows ate wild garlic conceiving the idea for this Sharpham favourite. However it came about, the richness of the cheese compliments the savoury herbs
and results in a scrumptious guest for any cheese board, or an amazing melted topping for bread, pasta or meats. Works well with the Pinot Gris ‘Wild Ferment’ or alternatively a crisp and fruity West Country cider!

The chives and garlic are added before the cheese is moulded. After hand moulding into basket moulds, the cheese is drained for 48 hours before being dry salted by hand. As the coat of the cheese grows, it is rubbed by hand to form the thin, natural rind and the cheeses are turned weekly.
A full size cheese will have a maximum shelf life of 1 month from the date of dispatch, and 2 months for our wholesale customers. The smaller cheeses have a shorter shelf life as they will ripen faster. The mini or medium cheeses will have a shelf life of 2-3 weeks from the date of dispatch. Please specify if there is a particular date on which you wish to eat the cheese.
