In the mid 1980's Sean & Deirdre Fitzgerald, traditional dairy farmers, pioneered a new concept in the Republic - sheep dairying. They diversified into Friesland Sheep farming and the production of sheep's cheese. Their cheese, Cratloe Hills Gold was the first sheep's cheese to be produced in Ireland. In excess of 140 sheep are milked daily from Spring to Autumn. In the family run business a hand made cheese is made in a traditional way on their farm. It has a high nutritional value, is easily digested, with no artificial additives, flavours or preservatives. To learn more about Sheep as a Dairy Animal Click Here
