Cornish Yarg

This beautiful, nettle-wrapped cheese is one of our favourites. Created by Alan Gray (‘Yarg’ is his surname spelt backwards) and now made at the award-winning Lynher Dairies in Ponsanooth, Cornish Yarg is creamy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly towards its core. Made from pasteurised cow's milk cheese, the flavour is fresh and lemony with a delicate mushroom taste imparted from the nettles, which are foraged from local hedgerows between May and September.

Cornish Yarg would definitely win any "pretty cheese" competition with its beautiful nettle rind. Children often ask us if the nettles sting… if you’re wondering, the answer is no!
