‘Boyne Valley Farmhouse Cheese’, which is owned and operated by Michael & Jenny Finegan. Boyne valley farmhouse cheese produces a range of cheeses using their own goat milk. The cheeses are made on the family farm, outside Slane in Co. Meath. An old stone building, which was formerly a cow byre 300 years ago, was converted into the present cheese making facility. Michael is a dairy goat farmer with a herd of 300 milking goats.
Half of the goat milk goes to Glenisk and the rest is made into cheese. The main cheese is ‘Boyne Valley Blue’, which is a semi-hard blue goats cheese. It is a mild to medium strength cheese. And a white goats cheese called ‘Boyne Valley Bán’ which won Best Irish Cheese in the 2018 British Cheese Awards.
