Farmhouse Cheeses are the product of unique interactions between people, place and pasture

Welcome to Discover Farmhouse Cheese!  Farmhouse Cheeses are some of the most bespoke, hand-made foods in the entire world! Buy a farmhouse cheese and you get the rarest of things – each cheese has a narrative, each one is telling the story of the cheese maker and of the farm where it was made. The cheeses speak quietly about the good things, about pure food, about fine milk, and content animals, about sharing and hospitality, and the creativity of a determined individual on a small farm, stamping every cheese with the signature of their personality.

This website will give you a host of information on the Discover Farmhouse Cheese campaign.  Check out our farm visits to book your place on a farm tour and product tasting, go along to one of our events in October Month of Cheese, or simply join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter!

Discover Farmhouse Cheese is financed with aid from the European Union, The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine, CAIS (The Association of Irish Farmhouse Cheesemakers), and the National Dairy Council.

Discover Farmhouse Cheese is an EU co-funded campaign organised by Bord Bia.
