About us

Yarg and Kern are not made anywhere else in the world. Every truckle comes from our small, rural dairy in mid Cornwall. We’ve been wrapping our Yargs in nettle leaves since the 1980s, introducing our wild garlic recipe as the millennium changed. In 2017, our new cheese Kern, a hard farmhouse cheese in a black waxy rind, was named Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards, securing our position as one of the top artisan cheese producers in the world.

We sell baby Yargs direct from the dairy (and very occasionally, our special edition Stithians cheese too). Yarg and Kern are sold widely in delis, farm shops and supermarkets throughout the UK.  If your local cheese shop doesn’t yet know about Yarg, please do ask for it. Kern takes 16 months to mature so is still in limited supply but keep checking as stocks are increasing all the time. We also export to the USA and Australia through Neal’s Yard Dairy.
