Our farm is situated in North Tipperary, a short distance from Terryglass. The ewes are outdoors for most of the year feeding on fresh grass and anything else they can get their mouths to! Meal is fed in the parlour which really helps to entice the ewes in. In the evenings we get verbal reminders that milking time is approaching!
Milk is transported three times a week to Portumna where Marion Roeleveld of Killeen Farmhouse Cheese manufactures Cáis Na Tíre.
The ewes are frieslands. They can be white or black or sometimes even both. They are a very friendly breed with many of them appreciating a scratch after the milking!
