Knockanore Cheese is made on the farm in the tiny townland of Ballyneety in the ancient and historic parish of Knockanore, County Waterford. The Irish name ‘Cnoc an Oir’, literally translates as ‘the hill of gold’. It is on these golden and lush rolling hills that Eamonn and Patricia Lonergan and their family keep a herd of 120 pedigree Friesian cows, and every drop of milk that goes into Knockanore Cheese is from these cows.
The name 15 Fields originates from the pastures on which the cows graze, the 15 fields. The cheese is made by traditional cheddar methods using Eamonn’s raw milk and vegetarian rennet. Production of 15 Fields is limited from about May to October because the cheese is only made when the cows are out on pasture. The 8 month mature cheddar is both sweet, and nutty and has a wonderful creamy mouth-feel.
