Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese is a unique, premium Irish farmhouse cheese produced directly on our farm in Co. Galway. Our unique award-winning cheese is inspired from the Swiss alps.
It is fully traceable and sustainable from farm to fork, Bord Bia – Origin Green approved. We are proud to be producing a product that has a low carbon footprint.
We are producing our highest quality raw material – natural milk from our grass-fed Pedigree Dairy herd of cows for over 60 years.
Cheese is only produced in the months of April to October and is matured for a minimum of 5 months, thisnatural washed rind cheese, has a creamy, nutty buttery flavour.
Our cheeses are handmade at the foothills of the Slieve Aughty mountains, Co. Galway in Kylemore 'downtown' to the monastic village of Abbey. Throughout the year we offer educational farm and cheese tours and a traditional afternoon tea in our 200 year old period farmhouse. Tours can be booked through our online shop.
I believe that the future of farming is ‘farm diversification’ adding value to our raw materials and creating sustainability through alternative enterprise on farms.
I am passionate about empowering women in agriculture and creating jobs in rural Ireland to enhance health and well-being in our communities.
