Leggyowan Farm Cheese

Although only in production since 2010, Northern Ireland’s first blue goat cheese was taken up with great enthusiasm by the region’s chefs and Leggyowan quickly became a familiar name.


This small artisan cheese business is run by brothers Adam, Ryan and Jason Kelly, who have a herd of almost 100 goats on their 20-acre holding in rich pastureland near Saintfield. They use their own milk to produce the Leggyowan Farm semi-soft blue cheese and, since 2012, a semi-hard white cheese has also been produced.


They also offer cartons of fresh pasteurised goats milk for sale, and produce a goat’s milk soap - and have plans for a goats milk fudge.


And goats are not the only interest for this enterprising family, who breed pedigree Hampshire Down sheep too.

Available from: local shops and farmers’ markets (details on inquiry). abbreviations
