The agricultural show season is underway, and that for us is always a bit of a thrill. We get to exhibit our cheeses, and in some cases, sell them too. Meeting customers face-to-face provides great feedback for us, as do the comments from judges up and down the country. News from the Devon County Show got things off to a very pleasing start with great wins for all three of our cheeses:
- Hard pressed cheese other than Cheddar – 2nd Prize for Cornish Kern
- Single speciality cheese- 2nd Prize for Cornish Yarg
- Cheese with additives – 1st Prize for Garlic Yarg
Not an agricultural show but just as important, the Taste of the West Awards have just given us Gold for both Yarg and Kern this year. Another lovely boost for our skilled cheesemakers.
Now we look forward to the Royal Cornwall Show in the second week of June,and the marvellous one day Stithians Show in July – see you there!
