Produced by Dan and John Hegarty in Whitechurch, Co. Cork, the cheese has a distinct earthy flavour with a slight crumbly texture. The enterprise began in 2000 when the two brothers returned from their studies and travels to their parents’ farm. They are fifth generation farmers whose land has been in the family since the mid 1800’s. The cheese is made from cow’s milk produced on the farm, during the summer months when the animals are at grass. This makes the product 100% traceable from the field to the ripening room.
