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.
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. We make cheese 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 to develop a firm yet delicately creamy texture and a full, approachable flavour. Our cheddar is available in pre-packaged wedges, complete 4.5kg roundels and cut to order.
We are honoured to have won Gold at the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards 2019.
We also won Silver and Bronze medals at the UK Artisan Cheese Awards 2019.
We are delighted to have won the cheddar class at the Listowel Food Fair Cheese Competition.
Having been shortlisted in the top three in our category at the Irish Quality Food Awards 2019 we were honoured to be ‘highly commended’.
