Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese


 

Since 2005 John Hempenstall of Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese has been making distinctive, award winning Irish cheeses. Initially starting as a supplementary income for his dairy farm, Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese has grown from strength to strength winning a multitude of national and international awards and is now sold across Ireland and into Europe.

John’s attention to detail is key to the success of his cheeses, from the care he takes to his dairy cattle that supply the milk he uses in his cheeses, to his own design custom made equipment, through to the packaging process every step has the finished product in mind. If you asked John the secret to his success he’d probably tell you that it’s simply the mixture of lush Wicklow grazing grass and the salty sea air that gives his cheese its own unique flavor.  Since his Daughter Mary has joined the family business they have enjoyed further success winning the prestigious Best Soft White Cheese for the Wicklow Bán in the British Cheese Awards in Nantwich UK 2015.
