The years have flown by and all of a sudden we’ve been involved with cheese and cheese makers for over 28 years. Our relationships have matured and thanks to a mutual understanding and respect we are able to have OUR VERY OWN cheeses made by people who we now count as friends. Currently they comprise:


Devon Sage

Sweet Charlotte

made by the lovely Rachel at Curworthy


Bakesey Meadow



made by the divine Debbie

Little Stinky

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

Sloe Tavy

made by supertalented cheesy Pete


They are wicked in the very best way and are made by ME!  

Sheeps' Tor

Our beautifully aged firm sheep's milk cheese.


The equivalent of the best artisan alpine cheese with benefits as we say.

                    The Home of 'Real' Cheese

                 We say 'our cheese really Rocks' !

                        we hope you'll agree.

     Visit our shops in Tavistock, Totnes and Topsham .

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 - HOW CRAZY IS THAT?! So we have worked for over 28 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 cheese has 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 access to it. There is always a team of happy, helpful and knowledgeable Country Cheeses staff in the shops to answer any questions you may have. They can also take your order after you've had a good look at our website. We hope you enjoy your shopping experience!
