CLA South West: Farm Walk of Lynher Dairies with Catherine Mead

Lynher Dairies are the sole producers of the iconic nettle-wrapped Cornish Yarg, Wild Garlic Yarg, Cornish Kern - a Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards - and the local’s favourite, buttery Stithians. The delicious cheeses are made by hand in open vats from the creamy milk produced by our own Ayrshires and other carefully selected herds. Happy cows are at the heart of the Lynher Dairies ethos.

Owned by Catherine Mead OBE, the small dairy is based in Ponsanooth, near Truro. Based on a 17th century recipe, they paint the foraged leaves, nettle, or wild garlic, on to the cheeses to create Yarg and let nature do the rest. The Stithians and Kern cheeses are encased in wax as they mature for longer.

Their award-winning cheeses can be found in specialist cheese shops, farm shops and delis across the UK and further afield.
