Made to exactly the same recipe as the traditional nettle wrapped Yarg, Cornish Wild Garlic Yarg is instead wrapped in the pungent wild garlic leaves of Lynher Dairies' woodlands. They impart a gentle garlicky flavour and their moisture gives the cheese a slightly firm texture.  The striking difference in taste, to the traditional Yarg, is all down to the leaves and their effect on the cheese as it matures.
