Glyde Farm Produce
Since 2000 Peter and Anita Thomas have been making their excellent semi-hard, raw milk, natural rind cheese Bellingham Blue Farmhouse Cheese here, on the banks of the River Glyde.
It is made from the milk of a single herd of Friesian cows using vegetarian rennet and this robustly flavoured cheese has won many awards, including 2010 Supreme Champion Irish Cheese in the British Cheese Awards. The Thomas's, who are members of the Oriel Food Group (ww.orielfoodgroup.ie), put its sucess down to the quality of milk produced on the lush pastrues of Co Louth - and the fact that their cheese is carefully handcrafted at every stage.
The newer Bellingham Bawn is a soft goats cheese.
Glyde Farm Produce is well distributed to selected retail outlets, is sold at local markets and festivals, and can also be purchased at the farm.
