Bó Rua Farm Farmhouse Cheese
Bó Rua Farm Farmhouse Cheese

Since beginning cheesemaking on the farm in September 2018 we have made it our mission to oversee every step of our pasture-to-plate produce.

Made by Norma in our on-farm “cheese dairy”, using traditional techniques, our cheese is made seasonally from March to October 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. It is available in pre-packaged wedges, complete 4.5kg roundels and cut to order.

In the short time since launching in May 2019 our cheese has won numerous awards.
