St Brigid cheese
St. Brigid is a loaf shaped, semi hard cheese and weighs approximately 3kg. Its mild creamy flavour has made it a hit with young and old alike. It is also a natural rind cheese.
The cheese is produced by Fermoy Natural Cheese Company, which is run by Frank and Gudrun Shinnick, on their farm located on the outskirts of Fermoy in County Cork in southern Ireland.
All the milk used in the Shinnicks' cheeses comes from their own herd of pedigree Friesian cows grazing the fertile pastures of the Blackwater River valley. The long grazing season on quality Irish pastures produces the very best of raw milk.
