Our Cheeses

Why is Knockanore Cheese unique?

  • The quality of land on which the cows graze on the farmlands of the Knockanore valley and the pastures along the Blackwater River.
  • The pedigree herd of Friesians which the Lonergan family have worked so hard to build through careful breeding and selection.
  • The use of raw milk to produce the cheese which adds a subtle layer of complexity.
  • The traditional processes used in cheese making, combined with the use of modern techniques in the long maturation period of the cheese, all taking place within a modern and purpose built facility on the farm.
