Cheese from Cornwall

Cornish Cheese, Yarg from Cornwall

Both goats and cows cheese are made here in Cornwall. Perhaps the best known is Cornish Yarg. The tale is that the name comes from "gray" spent backwards. Why gray you may ask - answer because the cheese is matured wrapped in nettle leaves, which turn gray as the cheese ages. I am never sure whether to believe this or not

I am working on putting together a list of Cornish cheese makers. e-mail me if you know of one to be added.
