Glenilen Farm is a family-run farm set up by husband and wife team, Alan and Valerie Kingston. The farm, based in Drimoleague, West Cork, Ireland produces yoghurt, cheesecakes and country butter as well as a range of other dairy products, using milk from the neighbouring farms.
Alan’s family has been farming for generations and in 1997 Alan and Valerie decided to focus on adding further value to their milk. With an entrepreneurial mind-set and a passion for baking, Valerie took advantage of the abundant milk supply by making delicious homemade cheesecake for the local country market.
Since then, Glenilen Farm has grown into a flourishing business that continues to hold true to its values of making a range of great tasting dairy products using a few simple ingredients. Glenilen Farm is now also a wonderful food tourism destination where visitors can learn and how see yoghurt being made on the West Cork farm.
Alan spends his time making yoghurt most days, while Valerie develops new mouth-watering recipes. The couple work hard to ensure that their products remain authentic, fresh and contain as few ingredients as possible. This ethos has been applied to their yoghurt range, which is made with a few simple ingredients. It has live probiotic cultures and 100% real fruit.
