Cornish Yarg Cheese, Cornish Cheese covered in Nettles
Gentle with a lemony tang, covered in nettles.
DESCRIPTIONCornish Yarg cheese is a lovely gentle cheese covered in stinging nettles made by the Lynher Dairy in Ponsanooth. Cornish Yarg is made with pasteurised milk and is a vegetarian cheese, its semi-soft, fresh tasting and zesty. It's name derives from the name of the family who invented it spelt backwards. The edible nettles are added to the outside and attract natural moulds that add a really mushroomy taste to the outside of the cheese. We sell a lot of these on our wedding cheese stacks as they look so pretty! Yarg has plenty of awards under its belt, including Best British cheese at the International Cheese Awards, as well as a Gold medal at this years British Cheese awards.
Cornish Yarg cheese is also available covered in wild garlic, which we don't stock all the time but can certainly get it in if you'd like some so please give us a bit of notice
