At Corleggy every cheese is made by hand with production not exceeding 10 tonnes per annum between Goats, Sheep & Cows’ milk cheeses. Tom & Silke Kroppe collect all their milk from three neighbouring farms using just mornings milk for production.
Creeny is a hard sheeps cheese. At 2 months this is a mild cheese but as it matures up to 12 months it becomes a very sharp cheese indeed. It is rare as production is limited to 4 months in the year. Sheep milk is the richest milk of the 3 and high butter fat and protein content makes for the rich luxurious taste. Like goats milk, sheep milk products are suitable for people with cow’s milk allergies.
Creeny is always very slightly salty, the reason is that the sheep graze the grass to the very earth, full of salts and minerals from all the rich rain!
