Cooleeney Farm Cheese
At Cooleeney Farm the fourth generation of the Maher family work the land. Their pedigree Friesian dairy herd is the main enterprise and animal husbandry and breeding receive Jim and Pat’s careful attention. The first recorded award for quality milk is noted in 1905 records. The farm continues to receive national and international awards for cheeses.
Quality is the keynote at Cooleeney. The cows are kept in a clean healthy environment. They enjoy the best of green pastures and carefully selected feed to ensure milk of the highest possible quality for the production of artisan cheeses. The Friesian dairy herd is a closed herd and all replacement animals are bred on the farm. This practice helps to reduce the risk of disease in the herd.
Coolhull Farm is a family-owned Irish company. Founded in 1990 by Tomas Murphy who began making ice cream using a classic Italian recipe on his dairy farm, Coolhull Farm, in Wexford under the Paganini brand.
Today the company still specialises in dairy and makes a full range of premium ice cream and desserts using the raw milk from Coolhull Farm.
