THE COUNTRY CHEESES’ VERY SPECIAL SELECTION
The years have flown by and all of a sudden we’ve been involved with cheese and cheese makers for over 25 years. Our relationships have matured and because of a mutual understanding and respect we are able to have our own cheeses made by people who we now count as friends. Currently they comprise:
Trehill, Devon Sage,
made by the lovely Rachel at Curworthy
Celeste,Bakesey Meadow, Withybrook, Chemmy
made by the divine Debbie
made by super Sue
Blue Bay or Boy as I call it!
made especially for us by the brilliant Ben. The softest, blue- est savoury-est of cheeses
made by supertalented cheesy Pete
The latest ones are
Our beautifully aged firm sheep's milk cheese.
The equivalent of the best
artisan alpine cheese with benefits as we say.
They are wicked, in a very, very good way.'

The Home of 'Real' Cheese
We say 'our cheese really Rocks' !
we hope you'll agree.
Currently with shops in Tavistock and Topsham and Totnes.
Birthdays, anniversaries and just good old "here's a pressie" gift time, yes, say it with fab cheese. Ours is defiitely extremely fab too - we put a huge amount of effort into the looking after the nurturing and the maturing of it - anything up to 5yrs!
We get rave comments by our dear customers about how delighted their nearest and dearest, friends and relations were with their cheese presents. I got to thinking why don't we make more of this perfect present. From about £30 including carriage you can give a truly worthwhile present, after all there are only so many chocs, socks, ties and books, etc etc anyone can really be excited about BUT the answer to this our fab cheese!
Our famous Cheese Wedding cakes are truly something to get excited about, for more info on them click on left side bar.
One of the main reasons we started working with cheesemakers and selling their cheese was because we could not easily get hold of this wonderful product, despite living in the heart of Devon. We have worked for over 25 years at making cheese more accessible for anybody wanting more than just something to chew on, something in fact that will excite the palate and the mind, our sort of cheese is cheese with soul. Now we feel the time is right to spread our net even wider and send 'real' cheese to those of you who do not have much access to it. We hope you enjoy your shopping experience. Please be aware that there is always a team of happy, helpful and knowledgeable Country Cheeses people in the shops to answer questions. They can also take your order after you've had a look at our internet site,
So please take a leisurely trip browsing the site there are so many different possibilities to be explored, although at present we can't send the delicious aromas to you over the phone, you will have to wait until you get your exciting parcel!> You can choose wonderful Westcountry Cheese online, find out all about truly stunning Wedding Cheese cakes that will make your day that much more special, and catch up on all the lastest Country Cheeses news.
