We make raw milk cheeses on our small family farm.
We milk four cows, Gertrude, Tilda, Kate & Daisy. They are a mixed herd of Irish shorthorns and Droimeanns, both native heritage breeds. They are low yielding and hardy, great for our rocky land.
Our farm is spray free and we don't use chemical fertilisers. The land is managed in line with organic practices.
The calves are bucket fed and reared alongside the cows.
On our farm we also keep goats, pet lambs, pigs, cats, dogs, some useless scrawny hens, ducks, geese and bees. Our pigs are reared on the waste whey from the cheesemaking.
