Like all the best things in life, for us, it’s all about passion.

Passion mixed with patience, knowledge and understanding the subtleties of the look and feel of the curd. And always using the best ingredients. So we only use the very best Cornish milk (sourced from within 30 miles of our dairy) – we know where it comes from and we know how to look after it. That ensures a really good curd, and, in turn, a really good cheese.





Our range of cheeses

Each of our Cornish soft cheeses is very different but equal when it comes to quality of ingredients and the passion and craft that has led to each one.

Cornish Cheesemakers

Working with the curd

Everything is done without compromise under the perfectionist gaze, nose and palate of our master cheesemaker, Martin Gaylard, who’s been dedicated to crafting prestige soft cheeses since boyhood.




  • Cornish truffle Brie made using the mighty #Truffler thanks to @therarewelshbitblog, using @tarietteuk’s lavender honey and almonds, and some puff pastry. Lost for words 😍❤️ #dontbriejealous
  • These have got us salivating @billycarey1 😍 Repost from @billycarey1 - Think I have been watching to much Bake Off. Felt the need to do 12 identical products. 😂😂
Here we have seasoned minced steak made into a cup,  filled with caramelised onion chutney, chopped spinach, mushrooms & topped with @curds_croust Cornish Camembert then wrapped in smoked streaky bacon.

Totally devine!!!…” - It's taken 30 years but I've finally found the world's most yummy cheese!!!!!! Totally devine!!!
