Garlic Yarg


Yarg was first produced 30 years ago on Bodmin Moor by a farmer named Alan Grey who found a seventeenth century recipe for nettle wrapped cheese in an attic and decided to try it out for himself. Today the cheese is made by Lyner Dairies in Ponsanooth, Cornwall, one of the most successful artisan cheese makers in the country.

Made to the same recipe as traditional Cornish yarg, the only difference is the leaves that the cheese is wrapped in. This wild garlic yarg is wrapped in the pungent leaves that arrive in Cornish woodlands in the spring and impart a gentle garlic flavour as the cheese matures. It also gives the cheese a slightly firmer texture. 

Available in bulk sizes and 150g pre-packs.
