Country Cheeses

Country Cheeses started out 24 years ago on a table in Tavistock Pannier Market with six local cheeses. They stock a few more now, in fact their cabinets are bulging with the best cheeses you can find anywhere and they all happen to be British and mostly from the Westcountry.

Owners Gary and Elise select, collect and mature the cheeses themselves, so have an intimate knowledge of all they sell. They are able to paint a real picture of where these cheeses come from and know how they are made. The cheeses are enhanced by being matured in suitable conditions. They also have a cheese cave now that provides an excellent environment for some of the harder cheeses to develop.

Country Cheeses have won Gold at the Devon County Show with their Cave Aged Yarg. “We are extraordinarily lucky in this part of the country to have such amazing cheesemakers and ‘cheese eaters’!  Long live ‘real’ cheese!” says Elise.
