When Jeffa Gill began making cheese on her farm in 1979, she started it as part of her pioneering spirit to provide for her family from her own small holding in West Cork and to capture something of the beauty of the area in her unique hand-crafted cheeses.
Today, 40 years on, our cheeses are still made by hand using traditional techniques on our farm in the beautiful valley of Coomkeen just beyond Durrus village in West Cork. We are a small family business dedicated to producing the highest quality product while staying true to the principles from which we were founded which were sustainability, quality and enjoying the work we do.
