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.




  • Just what we need after a hard day at the office 👍 #tuckintuesday Repost from @lavenderandlovage using @RepostRegramApp - Mixed Cheese and Charcuterie Tartines with Chive Flowers, I’ve discovered a big bed of chives in our new “old” garden and the flowers are just starting to come out. Here we have @curds_croust The Truffler, some Yorkshire blue, Serrano ham and peppered salami with aioli, lettuce and radishes. All assembled on slices of home made brown bread.
