– Bord Bia launches October Month of Farmhouse Cheese Nationwide –

This October, for the third year in succession, Bord Bia and the Discover Farmhouse Cheese campaign, will host up to 200 free farmhouse cheese events across the county to celebrate October Month of Cheese.

Throughout the month, retailers across Ireland, big and small, as well as farmers markets and farm shops, restaurants and pubs will host events and tastings, inviting consumers to try a huge variety of styles of farmhouse cheese. Cheese lovers will get the opportunity to engage directly with the product and its producers, allowing them to discover and taste farmhouse cheese, try new varieties, discover usage occasions and pick up a host of tips from seasonality to delicious recipes.

Over the month of October, the Discover Farmhouse Cheese campaign aims to get Irish consumers to try new types, experience new flavours and textures of farmhouse cheese.  Cheese lovers will also be able to learn about pairing farmhouse cheese with craft beers, whiskey or wine and pick up lots of other tips.

The Discover Farmhouse Cheese programme, an EU co-funded campaign organised by Bord Bia, is encouraging the public to discover the unique character of the individual cheeses and how products are produced on the farm, the transparency of the supply chain, and the story of the makers behind the products.

Speaking about October Month of Farmhouse Cheese, Eimear O’Donnell, Consumer Dairy Sector Manager, Bord Bia said:  “This is the third year of October Month of Farmhouse Chees and  to date it has been a great success, with packed events taking place throughout the length and breath of the country. This October, there will be almost 200 events for consumers to choose from including cheese talks and tastings, cheese making courses and cheese pairing to name a few. The October Month of Cheese gives consumers a great opportunity to find out more about one of the most bespoke, hand-made foods in the world”.
