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, also available in Rath’s Londis, Pollerton Road, Carlow and Coolanowle Food Hall, cheese counter on Dublin Street.
A new addition to our range of cheeses for 2020 is Vincenzo’s Sheep Cheese – a pecorino using both lamb and kid rennet in the Italian tradition – made by Vincenzo LaMana in County Carlow. Information and cheese available from Vincenzo on 085 7767617 and via Facebook.
This is a working farm, but may be visited by appointment.
