From the farmlands of the Knockanore valley to the pastures along the Blackwater river dwells a cheese company that is creating quality, artisanal cheeses.

These talented individuals have rediscovered what many believed was a lost art in Ireland. Through intensive study and a strong dedication to the art of cheese making, the Knockanore cheese makers handcraft distinctive cheeses to market for consumers to enjoy.

Situated in County Waterford in the ancient parish of Knockanore, or Cnoc an Oir – the hill of gold, Eamonn and Patricia Lonergan’s farm produces Knockanore Cheese, a GOLD-WINNER at the IRISH & WORLD CHEESE AWARDS in 2011. A hard-pressed, mature farm-house cheese made with raw cow’s milk from the Lonergan’s own Pedigree Friesian herd Knockanore’s simple, subtle flavour, and rich creamy texture offers a real taste of the country. It comes flavoured with spices and herbs such as black pepper and chives or oakwood smoked.

You can support artisanal cheese making in Ireland and around the world by purchasing these extraordinary cheeses directly from the farm, at farmers’ markets or at retailers, whether you are a cheese maker, a cheese lover, or are in related business, we welcome your participation.

This project was funded under the Rural Development Programme 2007 -2013 - under the Measure Adding Value to Agricultural and Forestry Products
