Cornish Yarg

Size: 1kg


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.

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!

    Great taste, very popular with all the family.

    Gorgeous cheese

    This is lovely cheese and we still enjoying it. The only improvement would be a local delivery rate, as I only live a short way away and yet pay the same as national delivery.


    As always the delicious flavour of the Cornish Yarg was appreciated by all.
