Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese is a small family business in the South East of Co. Wicklow. The Hempenstall family have been milking cows on a small dairy farm at Curranstown, Arklow, Co. Wicklow for the past 50 years.


Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese is a family owned business established in 2005. The Hempenstall family farm lies between Croghan Mountain and the Irish Sea at Curranstown, Arklow, Co. Wicklow just 2km from the East Coast. John and his family before him have been farming here for generations. We use milk from the family farm Friesian herd to make our creamy delicious cheeses.

The proximity to the sea adds a distinctive flavour all of its own to these seductively addictive cheeses. John and his family work seven days a week to produce award-winning artisan cheeses like you’ve never tasted before. Browse through our website and find out more about our company and the products we provide. We have BRC Accreditation and are Halal Certified.
