Inagh Farmhouse Cheese

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

During almost fifteen years at the helm of the enterprise of minding and milking and making cheese from a herd of almost three hundred goats, Siobhan ni Ghairbhith has taken St Tola to a deeper, and elemental part of the food culture. She acquired organic status for her herd, she has won every significant award for cheese making that you can win, and she has expanded the range of cheeses, from the best-known St Tola goat’s log, on into fresh crottins, soft cheeses, aged cheeses and flavoured cheeses.

All of this has happened because she enjoys and articulates a profound vision of working with the land, of understanding the land, and its potential, and its goodness. Ms ni Ghairbhith is not just a cheesemaker: she is a philosopher of food, and her philosophy is expressed in the most elemental, and elementally delicious, way: she brings forth goodness with the St Tola cheeses, and she shares it with all of us.
