Here at Bó Rua Farm we enjoy the perfect 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.
Our cheese is produced seasonally from March to October while our cows are outdoors, enjoying a grass diet.
Made on our farm using traditional techniques, our cheddar is carefully produced and gently aged for a minimum of six months by which time it has a firm yet delicately creamy texture and a full, approachable flavour. 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. Our cheddar is available in pre-packaged wedges, complete 4.5kg roundels and cut to order.
We have received numerous awards for our cheese, the most recent was a Silver medal (Farmhouse class) and two Bronze medals (Hard and Cows Milk classes) at the Artisan Cheese Awards in April 2019.
We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the finals of both the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards 2019 and the Irish Quality Food Awards 2019. The winners will be announced in October – fingers crossed!!
