The cheese is loosely based on a Caerphilly recipe, and it is wrapped in stinging nettles (Utica Dioica) that are completely edible. The nettles are handpicked from the local Cornish countryside when they are a bright, vibrant green, and frozen for use throughout the year.

A team of settlers apply the leaves in elegant concentric circles, once the cheeses have been removed from their moulds and branded ready for maturation.

The leaves protect the cheese, while allowing it to breathe and attract the specific moulds that encourage the beautiful almost lace-like appearance of the rind to develop. This in turn begins to break down the interior of the cheese, although the texture remains gently crumbly in nature.
