Wild Garlic Yarg
A unique and beautiful looking cheese with its distinctive appearance; wrapped in vivid wild garlic leaves, giving a subtle garlic flavour.
Made by hand in open round vats using pasteurised milk from their grass fed herd of Holstein/Fresian cows, Cornish Yarg is a delicious semi-hard cheese from Lynher Dairy, Cornwall.
The wild garlic leaves are picked from the hedgerows and woods on nearby farms; they are frozen and then applied individually by hand by the artisan cheesemakers. They impart a gentle garlicky flavour and their moisture gives the cheese a slightly firm texture.
Wild Garlic Yarg is creamy under the rind and slightly crumbly in the core, it is a young cheese with a fresh, slightly lemony tangy taste. A stunner on any cheese board.

It is necessary to apply a common sense approach to cheese care and respond to the cheese you have in front of you, as opposed to following rigid guidelines.
The best option is to keep the cheese wrapped in its waxed paper within a box in the fridge. The container will help to prevent the cheese from drying out and prevent the cheese from absorbing flavours.

About the producer
Lynher Dairies is the home of Cornish Yarg and Wild Garlic Yarg. It is now one of the most successful makers of artisan cheese in Britain, consistently winning top prizes, including Best English Cheese at the International Cheese Awards.
Trevor and Julie Howe lovingly built up the herd of Ayrshires over decades, handing over the Cornwall Council tenancy to Jonathan and Eleanor Hosken in 2019. Like the Howes, the Hoskens farm by the highest of animal welfare principles.
The grass-rich milk produced by the Ayrshires is used in making the Cornish Yarg. Pleasingly, they won a Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2019 after entering their first batch of Cornish Yarg made entirely from their Ayrshire milk. Top judges clearly agree – superb milk makes superb cheese!
Incredibly, the farm hand picks two tonnes of nettle and wild garlic leaves to dress their cheese each year.
