Carlow Cheese is situated on a farm in the centre of the county – milking dairy sheep and some goats. The dairy sheep provide the milk for a hard pecorino type cheese, which may be matured for up to two years.
The goat’s milk is used to make a tomme type cheese.
Cow’s milk is bought from a neighbouring farmer and a small amount of cow cheese is made to complement the sheep and goat milk.
All available in the weekly Carlow Farmers Market – every Saturday at Potato Market, Rath’s Londis, Pollerton Road, Carlow and some retail shops. This is a working farm, but may be visited by appointment.
