What do they do?

When visiting Ireland many years ago, Marion Roeleweld fell in love with the place (and a particular goat farmer called Haske).  Haske farmed around 40 goats in the small village of Killeen and was supplying the milk to the local creamery.  In 2004 Marion relocated to Ireland from Holland.  Dutch by birth, she’d grown up on a dairy farm and had studied how to make cheese at agricultural school.  Using these skills, she developed a cheese in a style she knew – Gouda.  Killeen Goats’ Milk Gouda was born. And the goat herd has now grown! To over 200!

Why do we love them?

As goats’ milk is more frequently used to make smaller, fresher cheeses - this goats’ milk gouda is rather unique!
