Taste of the Week. Knockanore Vintage Cheddar

Taste of the Week

Knockanore Vintage Cheddar

Not for the first time, Knockanore Vintage Cheddar is our Taste of the Week. As it matures on the farm in West Waterford, the cheddar becomes drier and more crumbly. It has the expected subtle and creamy tones but is stronger than the younger version with a delicious satisfying tang that cheese lovers crave.

Knockanore Cheddar is produced using raw milk on the Lonergan farm in Ballyneety, Co. Waterford. All of the milk used comes from their pedigree herd of Friesian cows that graze on the lush rolling hills of the countryside. It is produced using traditional cheddaring techniques which involve stacking the cheese curds on top of one another to produce a firm but slightly open textured cheese.

Eamonn and Patricia Lonergan began making cheese on their Knockanore farm in 1987. The cows graze on quality grass, they’re milked and the Lonergans use traditional methods to make a variety of delicious cheeses
right on the farm. This beauty is just one of them! Well worth seeking out.
