Two Prizes at the Cais Irish Cheese Awards
We’ve been absolutely flat to the mat lately. We are getting ready to sell at Ballymaloe Fair in Cork. Hot off the heels of that will be Gifted at the RDS in Dublin, but spirits are very high and Aran Goats Cheese and Food Tours HQ. We have only gone and won TWO prizes at the Cais Irish Cheese Awards. We went to the ceremony last week and to be honest, we were just glad to be out, but those two awards really made us grin from ear to ear. They were for our Pearls and our Dillisk Boilies.
It’s such a great feeling to have two of our cheeses winning awards when they were up against some of the most formidable cheesemakers in Ireland.
We are still on a high, but the farm work won’t do itself.
We have been rebuilding walls and checking raincatchers before putting the cattle to winterage on the high ground by the cliffs.
No rest for the wicked!
Till next time
