Lynher Dairies

Our herd

Meet our beautiful herd of Ayrshires! They live just down the road from our dairy at Gadles Farm and provide us each morning with the rich, creamy milk we need to make our award-winning cheeses. In return, we look after them with exacting care and attention. We ensure their needs are at the top of the list of priorities each and every day.

Farmers Jonathan and Eleanor Hosken adhere to the highest of animal welfare principles, so we know our cows have all they need to enjoy comfortable, healthy lives.

We use the Ayrshire’s grass-rich milk in all our  Cornish Kern production and it goes towards making Yarg too. Pleasingly, we won a Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2019 after entering our first batch of Cornish Yarg made entirely from our Ayrshire milk. Top judges clearly agree – superb milk makes superb cheese!
