Cornish Yarg



The leaves, which attract naturally occurring moulds, are brushed onto the cheese in concentric circles. As the cheese matures, the edible wrap imparts a delicate, mushroomy taste and develops its unique bloomy white appearance.

Once matured, nettled Yarg is fresh, lemony and creamy under its beautiful rind, with an irresistible crumble in the core.

Cornish Yarg made by Lynher Dairies is a nettle wrapped semi hard cheese made from grass rich Cornish milk. Tangy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly in the core, it consistently wins top international awards.

Please allow for 10% variants on the weight as all of our cheeses are hand made and cut.

Storage & Serving

Keep well wrapped in the fridge but we do recommend removing cheese from the fridge and any wrapping to allow the cheese the ‘breath’ for an hour or two before serving which will allow the full flavour and character of the cheese to come through!

    The Yarg was quite tasty, milder than cheese I normally buy, made a pleasant change.

    Love it. A nice creamy flavour and a nice texture. Have had this many a time and one of our favourites. Excellent.

    Great cheese & customer service

    I ordered 900g of Yarg to be delivered to my Dad because we can’t buy it locally and it’s his favourite. They were happy to add a note to the delivery saying it was from me. The delivery was on time and I’m happy to say he shared the cheese, which was delicious!
