Cornwall enjoys exceptional food of all sorts, not just cheese. Recent research confirms that eating the wonderful speciality and local produce is an important reason for choosing to visit the South West. The climate and location have made diversification into cheese-making an obvious choice for many farmers. Some are now big businesses but most stay true to their roots and offer a truly Cornish product.

Each selection contains four cheeses similar to those shown below and has a total weight of around 800g (this is only a guide as quantities can and do vary depending on the cheese included).
