Elizabeth Bradley started making cheese in 2005 on her farm at Fenagh in County Carlow using raw milk from a neighbour’s dairy herd. Elizabeth developed the cheese for sale at the local farmer’s market in Carlow where her cheeses have built up a loyal following within a few short years. She believes that it is vital to the interests of both farmers and consumers that there is an increase in direct interaction between the two.
Ewes milk production lasts for just 6 months of the year (April-Sept), while Elizabeth’s cheese is available all year round. Their dairy Lacaune ewes happily rear their lambs on the farm and stress-free ewes gives beautiful rich milk. This cheese is flavoursome; nutty and moreish without being strong; it’s not far removed from mild cheddar in flavour. It’s a firm cheese which can be matured for up to a year or more.
