Charmer Information Page




After many years making our Italian Style Hard Cheese - Twineham Grange, we decided to create a new cheese, using part of the Twineham Grange recipe and that of a mature Cheddar. The result of this unique recipe is our Sussex Charmer Cheese. It is produced exclusively with milk from our own herd of dairy cows from Pallinghurst Farm in Rudgwick, West Sussex. We have been at the forefront of dairy farming for three generations. Our Welfare Assured cows, are grass fed and are of mixed breed, producing milk that is very high in protein and butterfat. This high quality milk (Bacta scan less than 50, TBC less than 200) is the essential ingredient for producing a cheese that is very creamy and full of flavour. In its first year Sussex Charmer reached the final 12 in the 2007 Tesco Cheese Challenge and in 2008 received a bronze at the World Cheese Awards. Amazingly, it won BEST NEW DAIRY PRODUCT at the 2008 Nantwich International Cheese Awards, which is the largest cheese awards in the world. Sussex Charmer has continued to do very well at Nantwich with Best British modern in 2012 and Best catering and food service cheese in show in 2013 and further GOLDS in 2014, 15, 17 & 18. It has also won Gold at The Great Taste Awards 2010 and 2012.

Taste Characteristics

A full-bodied and creamy, mature farmhouse cheese taste with a long taste profile. Sussex Charmer has a firm yet crumbly texture with a long taste profile, making it the ideal compliment for pickles and chutneys. It is an exceptional table cheese, to be enjoyed with fruit or a glass of wine. However, it also grates well and unlike Parmesan, is made from full fat milk, hence melting beautifully over pasta or when employed for cheese on toast, cheese sauces, soufflés and scrambled eggs. An all-round performer, this cheese is a must in every kitchen.
