At Bó Rua Farm our family produces award winning cheese using milk from our own herd of cows. The inspiration for our diversification into farmhouse cheese and indeed the name of the farm came from our Montbeliarde cows, known affectionately as the ‘Red Cows’ due to their distinctive rust coloured markings. Bó Rua translates from the Irish to Red Cow.
Here in the rolling pastures of East Cork, we enjoy the ideal combination of fresh air, fertile soil and rain which produces a plentiful supply of lush grass for our Montbeliarde and Friesian cows to graze. The pure milk they produce is rich, nutritious and delicious – perfect for cheese making.
We have made it our mission to oversee every step of our pasture-to-plate produce to ensure we bring you the finest of cheese.
