Established as a farmer owned cooperative in 1898, Five Mile Town Creamery has established a long tradition of making exceptional dairy products, gathering many awards along the way.
Cooneen is a mild goats cheese, handmade in small batches using premium grade milk from Hazel Dunn, one of only a handful of goat farmers in Ireland.
We have chosen this soft, creamy, mellow cheese to accompany all the good things that early summer brings us, such as asparagus, broad beans, courgettes and peas.
The Dunn family have been farming near the quiet, picturesque village of Brookeborough since 1940. Hazel and her husband Bill have been breeding dairy goats since 1998 and now have a herd of almost 400. The delicate paste is mild, fresh & creamy and is delicious melted on a bruschetta or salad or simply as a table cheese with wheat wafers.
