Producer

Eamonn and Patricia Lonergan have been making their Knockanore cheddar type since 1987. The cheese is made on their farm at Ballyneety, in Waterford, using raw cow’s milk from their own pedigree herd, about half of all the milk produced on the farm is currently used for cheesemaking.

Knockanore Farmhouse Cheese resides in the townland of Knockanore in Co. Waterford are typical of many in Ireland. The house feels and looks like so many other well-kept Irish farmhouses, with proudly hung photographs showing the family’s links to Waterford hurling. There is nothing you can see from outside its walls that gives a hint of the extraordinary work that takes place inside the simple grey shed at the back of the Lonergan’s house. Eamonn has been producing a Cheddar-style cheese called Knockanore from the raw milk of his herd on his farm for almost 30 years. Along with his plain Cheddar he also makes a naturally smoked version as well as cheeses with different combinations of herbs and spices. We have been stocking Knockanore since our first stall in Galway, although it wasn’t until a few years later that it became one of our big sellers.
