Dozio Cheese Where the South of Switzerland meets the West of Ireland.....
Cheesemaking in Co. Mayo
We, Danilo & Helen Dozio began making Swiss style cows' milk cheeses in Co. Mayo, where Helen comes from, in 2016, using traditional recipes from the south of Switzerland, where Danilo grew up. Ancient recipes together with rich cows' milk from Derek & Mary Richardson's farm, just minutes away from the dairy, make for unique and truly delicious cheeses. Barr Rua, an Alpine style hard cheese matured for a minimum of 3 months won Best New Cheese & Gold at the Irish Cheese Awards 2019. We also make Ella - semi-hard cheese, Zing - flavoured soft cheese, Danny Boy - fresh cheese & Cheese Beer Kegs - matured soft cheese. All our cheeses are from cows' milk.
Our Green Ethos
In our personal lives and as cheesemakers we have always taken the environment seriously and tried to be as green as possible with
top quality locally sourced milk, not intensively farmed
solar energy for our electricity
a heat pump to heat our dairy and to keep our cellar cool in Summer
recyclable packaging & paperpackaging when possible
Your cheese is in safe hands
DAFM Approval No. 2113
Food Safety Management System
Regular testing & audits
All milk batch pasteurised in our dairy
Tried & trusted Swiss recipes
We'd love to sell more cheese LOCALLY, why buy imported or mass produced cheese when you have QUALITY ARTISAN CHEESE on your doorstep?
