Three gold stars at the Great Taste Awards is not to be sniffed at (although this is exactly what the judges do – aroma, appearance, taste and texture is their mantra). Cornish Yarg has been deemed worthy of the coveted accolade this year, which makes us all feel very proud but not entirely surprised. Modesty aside, this is a great year for Yarg and our cheesemakers deserve every praise. Our Wild Garlic Yarg has also been recognised as worthy of a gold star too. Both cheeses are tasting sublime at the moment.

On the subject of awards, we have reached the shortlist in the Best Hard Cheese category for the inaugural Great British Cheese Awards (in association with Peter’s Yard), and we need your help to win…

The awards set out to recognise, celebrate and reward the best of British cheese produced and distributed by independent cheesemakers and retailers, so we would love our hard work (and talent!) to be recognised.

The awards are given out according to who gets the most nominations from the general public – so if you enjoy Yarg and, like the judges at the Great Taste Awards, consider it a worthy winner, please do vote for us here:
