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 and Best Irish Cows Milk Cheese at the UK Artisan Cheese Awards 2021.
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.
