We are Lynher Dairies, award-winning cheesemakers from Cornwall. We make our cheeses in open vats, using full fat milk from our own herd of Ayrshires and other carefully selected Cornish farms. Every single truckle of Yarg, Kern and Stithians comes from our small rural dairy near Truro.
Cornish Yarg is all about the nettles! Foraged from Cornish hedgerows and fields in spring, we freeze the leaves so they last all year round. By the time we brush them on, the sting has left them but the flavour hasn’t. The cheese develops a dusting of bloomy white moulds across its leafy rind, helping it mature. Six weeks from field to finish, Yarg has a fresh mushroomy taste with an irresistible crumble in the core.
