Cornish Garlic Yarg



Compare the tastes and it is hard to believe that nettled Cornish Yarg and Wild Garlic Yarg are made to an identical recipe. The difference comes at the point we paint on the leaves. The striking contrast in taste and texture is entirely down to nature. The aromatic wild garlic from Cornish woodlands each spring, selecting every one by hand.

Lynher Dairies team of nettlers wrap the leaves around the bare truckle in a ribbon pattern. Six weeks later, the wild garlic has created a slightly firmer texture than the nettles. They darken in colour and impart a gentle garlicky flavour so we like to say Wild Garlic Yarg whispers rather than shouts its name.

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

    Purchased for a garden luncheon, the cheeses selected were so presentable and went down a treat. Luckily.
    Any negatives? Yes. The delivery. I was explicit, ‘leave it in a safe place’. When I got home, there was a box in front of my door, in the sun, with a label facing the street stating exactly what was in the box….
    Without the ability to go and colleect my purchase, I am not certin that I would make another purchase.

    We absolutely loved having the cheese tower on the dessert table at the wedding. It was important to us to have local, great cheeses and Charly and the team absolutely delivered! Thank you!
