Lavistown Cheese

A light, crumbly, fresh-tasting cheese originally-made by made by Olivia Goodwillie at Lavistown House, Lavistown, Kilkenny, Ireland from unpasteurised cows' milk - to an original Swaledale recipe.

The cheese is now made by Knockdrinna Farm House Cheese (still in County Kilkenny) but using local pasteurised cows milk.

It has a tangy flavour when young, but becomes more Cheddar-like as it matures. For more information see (
