Nettling A Cheese: The Secret to Not Getting Stung

7:00pM (BST) Sunday 15th October: virtual event

About this event

Cornish Yarg is possibly the most beautiful cheese in the World. Lynher Dairy forage two tonnes of stinging nettles every year from local woodlands, hedgerows and fields in spring, which are then handbrushed onto their multi-award winning Cornish Yarg cheese.

Get an insider’s view of this craftmanship and find out how they contribute to the finish of this exquisite British cheese, with this exclusive recording of the nettlers in action.

nb: You will need to crank up the volume to get the most out of this video (it was filmed in a working dairy after all!). After the video ends, press the Instagram Live Big Red Button to watch Otto Mead in action!
