Lynher Dairies, the United Kingdom-based maker of Yarg, won Supreme Champion 2017 at the World Cheese Awards for its Kern artisan cheese.

“This really is the highest of accolades and it belongs to our entire team,” said Catherine Mead, owner of Lynher Dairies. “This really is the highest of accolades and it belongs to our entire team. Our cheesemaking skills have been honed by years of Yarg production, and Kern’s story began when we decided to make optimum use of our skill and equipment by creating a new longer maturing cheese. Right from the off, it has been recognized as something really special.”

Kern is a hard cheese with a salt crystal bite full of alpine savory notes with hints of caramel. It is available in the United States through Neal’s Yard Dairy.
