In custom build cheese making premises at their farm in beautiful West Waterford, Agnes and Wolfgang Schliebitz make a range of sheep’s cheeses and a semi hard cow’s milk cheese, made from summer milk and called Comeragh.
The main range includes:
Knockalara Sheep’s Cheese (the best known, a creamy cheese sold from 10 days to 5 months), very versatile in cooking, salads, lunches etc. and suitable for vegetarians.
Dromana (young, delicate and creamy, coated with cracked peppers or rolled in herbs and preserved in sunflower oil).
Knockalara 'Mature', a semi hard sheep’s cheese (mild, slightly crumbly with age)
Although produced seasonally, some cheeses are available all year - find them at farmers markets and selected shops and look out for them on restaurant menus.
Meet the cheese makers on Thursdays at the Dungarvan Farmers market and on Saturdays at Waterford City Market, where they also sell a range of other Farmhouse Cheese and selected continental cheeses.
