Luscombe Sicilian Lemonade 27cl x2
- Cornish Blue 200g
From their farm on Bodmin Moor near Liskard, Phillip and Carol Stansfield hand craft a blue cheese like none other. Cornish Blue differs in characteristics to more traditional English blues such as Stilton or Dorset Vinny. Designed to be eaten as a young cheese, it is mild and creamy with a dense, sticky texture – attributes that earned it the accolade of ‘Supreme Champion’ at the World Cheese Awards in 2010. Once the milk from their Holstein-Friesian cows has been dry salted and set into moulds, it is pieced to allow naturally occurring moulds to work their magic and break down the interior of the cheese and then matured for 12 to 14 weeks – resulting in a unique flavour. We most enjoy talking cheese with Phillip up at Sandy Park whilst watching the Exeter Chiefs play his former club Sale Sharks.
- Sharpham Brie 200g
On the glorious Sharpham estate, nestled amongst the banks of the River Dart near Totnes, Mark Sharman and his team take fresh raw milk from their herd of Jersey cows and apply it to a recipe that’s been unique to the creamery since 1981. The curds are hand ladled into moulds, turned regularly and then brined and left to develop a furry white coat. The end result is a Coulommiers style mould ripened soft cheese that is often likened to a Brie. When ripe, Sharpham oozes a creamy rich and buttery interior that is often imitated but never bettered. Mark often joins us here at Darts Farm to share his knowledge and passion for artisan cheese and English wine.
Cornish Kern 200g
From their small rural dairy in near Truro, Cornwall, Catherine Mead and the team at Lynher Dairies handcraft their incredible Kern using the rich and creamy milk from their own herd of Ayrshires; bringing seasonal flavour at different times of the year. It is gently heated at low-pasteurisation temperature and Alpine cultures—savoury, buttery, grassy nutty—are added to develop its character and burnt caramelised notes are created through scalding of the curds. Once the moulds are in presses, pressure is gradually increased to force out the whey and fifty hours in a briny bath adds the salty taste. The cheese is then painted in a breathable black wax coating and left to mature for 16 - 18 months. The result is an amazing hard farmhouse cheese with a rich buttery taste and caramel notes - it is no wonder that Kern was crowned Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards 2017.
ADD SOME SPARKLE TO YOUR PICNIC
Pebble Bed Sparkling Rose £25
Crafted just a mile from here, our dear friend Geoff Bowen launched Pebblebed as a community project in 1999. His immense passion for sustainable viticulture along with the role of food and drink in our community meant that Pebblebed grew into the award winning vineyard it is today. Sadly, Geoff passed away in 2018 leaving his wife Anna and head winemaker Alex to continue to pursue his dream of creating exceptional English wines. A blend of Seyval Blanc and Rondo, this fizz is a wonderful salmon pink colour, with an excellent creamy mouse, delicate red berry and rose petal flavours balancing the fresh acidity.
