A long-established producer of well known cheeses, including acquired brands Boilié (goats) and, more recently, the Causeway Cheese Company range
Situated in the lush Clogher Valley, Fivemiletown Creamery is a long-established producer of well known cheeses including Ballybrie, Ballyblue (blue in the brie style), Ballyoak (smoked brie style), Oakwood and the Fivemiletown Creamery cheddars.
But, unusually, they are now better known for the cheese brands they have bought in recent years than for their own lines - Boilié goats cheeses, for example and, since 2012, the four cheeses in the Causeway Cheese Company range - Castlequarter, Ballyknock, Ballybradden and Coolkeeran.
While it may be sad to see these iconic brands moving away from the area where they were originally produced, it is reassuring that they have been acquired by a highly regarded manufacturer.
