Lynher Dairies is the home of Cornish Yarg, Wild Garlic Yarg, Cornish Kern and Stithians. Every bit of it is made in our small, rural dairy in mid Cornwall. We’ve been wrapping our Cornish Yarg in nettle leaves since the 1980s. Our Wild Garlic followed,  with our newest cheese Cornish Kern winning Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards in 2017.

We sell Yarg, Kern and Stithians in a range of sizes direct from our dairy in Cornwall and from our online shop. Find us in delis, farm shops and supermarkets throughout the UK too. Email us at if you need help finding a stockist. We export to the USA and Australia through Neal’s Yard Dairy.

We belong to Cornwall Food and Drink, Dairy UK and sponsor the UK Cheese Guild and the Academy of Cheese. Dairy owner Catherine Mead OBE is chair of the Specialist Cheese Association and Lynher Dairies also supports the Cornwall Community Foundation and the Cornish World Heritage Sites.
