Welcome To Corleggy

Watching fresh warm morning’s milk running into our cheese vat brings joy & excitement for the production to come. Cheese making is Magic! #RawMilk

We believe that small is beautiful. Every cheese is made by hand with production not exceeding 10 tonnes per annum between Goats, Sheep & Cows’ milk cheeses.

We collect all our milk from three neighbouring farms using just mornings milk for our production (Good morning Cows’, Sheep & Goats!). Our farmers agree with us that grass fed animals give the best milk.

Our main outlets are Farmers Market in and around Dublin City, some Delicatessen’s around Ireland, Shops & high end restaurant’s. The finest quality RAW milk from locally grazed herds of Goats, Sheep & cows’ is handmade into hard & soft cheeses, which mature for at least 3 months.

Recently we have started making soft cheeses.
Both are white moulded fresh soft cows’ & Goats cheeses.

 

Each of our farmhouse cheeses is cared for individually with lots of subtle flavours and improving with maturity; its natural rind is nurtured being one of the cheeses characteristics.

The only added ingredients are Vegetarian Rennet & salt. Our range of cheeses are hard and resistant, with a long life.

We believe in the slow food philosophy; it takes time for these wonderful cheeses to mature & develop.
