Made in Cornwall… maybe it’s something to do with living in a region known for its sparkling seas, vibrant seaside villages, colourful harbours and great local produce. Whatever it is, Cornwall is full of creative talent and exciting local places to shop and spend time. Here are a few of our favourites all made in Cornwall with love…
Cornish Yarg – a soft, nettle-wrapped cheese was first made 30 years ago on a farm on Bodmin Moor, getting the name by spelling the name of its creator – Alan Gray – backwards. Now made on a farm at Pengreep, near Truro, and winner of many accolades, this is a regional cheese to be proud of.
With a workshop in Penzance and lovely shop in St Ives, Poppy Treffry is a Cornish treasure. Based on Poppy’s own hand-drawn sketches, her designs are all cut out by hand and stitched in Cornwall by a small team of skilled stitchers. Quirky, handmade and full of charm.
