Killeen cheese is a goat’s Gouda produced by Marion Roeleveld in Ballyshrule, Galway, Ireland.

After visiting Ireland several years ago, Marion was in love. Not only with the lush countryside and rolling green hills, but also with a man named Haske. Haske was a goat farmer in the village of Killeen and at the time ran a herd of around 40 goats, providing milk to the local creamery. Having been raised on a dairy farm in her native Netherlands, Marion recognised the quality of milk that Ireland’s rich pastures produced.

Marion made the move to Ireland in 2004 and, using the knowledge she had picked up at agricultural school, began making cheese in a style she was familiar with: Gouda. Gouda is traditionally a cow’s milk cheese with goats milk often being reserved for soft, fresh cheeses. In this sense Killeen is unique.

Killeen cheese is a beautifully smooth cheese with a slight sweetness to it and floral, nutty notes. Try it on Ditty’s crackers with a side of sweet mango chutney for a decadent afternoon snack!
