Experimenting in her kitchen in 2004, home chef Helen Finnegan made the very first batch of what was to become Knockdrinna Farmhouse Cheese using just a few simple household utensils and a small amount of goats milk.
Deciding to invest in her passion for good food, Helen began making cheese full time and the first Knockdrinna cheese – a Goats Cheese Camembert, Knockdrinna Snow – was born.
The cheese is carefully made from rich, full cream, raw cow’s milk, using traditional cheddaring techniques. This results in a firm but slightly open textured hard cheese with a unique and subtle flavour.
The cheese is available in vintage red and white, both aged for a minimum of 8 months as well as varieties made with herbs and spices. The most iconic cheese in the range is perhaps the smoked version.

Tom Burgess has been producing top quality milk from his pasture fed cows in West Wicklow for twenty years.
He wanted to develop a product which reflected this quality and decided it would be Mature Raw Milk Cheddar.. “Pasture to Cheddar the same day”.
The milk we use to make Coolattin Cheddar is special for a number of reasons, we process in the summer months when the cows are grazing fresh clover-rich pasture only which is the ideal diet for cheese processing milk.

The Ferguson family have worked Gubbeen Farm for many generations now.
It is a 250 acre coastal farm in West Cork one mile outside the fishing village of Schull, the Atlantic Ocean bordering one boundary and Mount Gabriel to the North as a back drop behind the land, sheltering the pasture that has always supported the Gubbeen herd.
When Jeffa Gill began making cheese on her farm in 1979, she started it as part of her pioneering spirit to provide for her family from her own small holding in West Cork and to capture something of the beauty of the area in her unique hand-crafted cheeses.
Today, 40 years on, our cheeses are still made by hand using traditional techniques on our farm in the beautiful valley of Coomkeen just beyond Durrus village in West Cork.
The inspiration for the name of our farm and our cheese came from our gentle Montbéliarde cows, a breed that originate in France where they are synonymous with traditional cheese making.
Made by Norma using traditional techniques, our cheese is made seasonally while our cows are outdoors, enjoying a grass diet. Our cheese is carefully produced and gently aged to develop a firm yet delicately creamy texture and a full, approachable flavour.
