Meet the Maker ‘Teresa Roche’ with Galway Food Tours

The award-winning Galway Food Tours who guide people through the food scene of Galway have added to their offering this spring/summer with a new program that will introduce the people behind the food. The Meet the Maker tour will combine food and the unique characters in Galway who bring the best of what is on offer to life.

Bringing in the cheese is Teresa Roche, the woman behind the award winning Kylemore FarmHouse Cheese – produced on Teresa’s family farm at the foothills of the Slieve Aughty mountains in Co Galway.

On Thursday 18 May she will share her journey on becoming a fourth generation dairy farmer and talk you through what is involved in getting her premium cheese from farm to table…while sampling her delicious cheese.

After meeting Teresa, you will take a short walk to one of Galway Food Tours special restaurants for a dinner and wine pairing…finishing the evening off with a nightcap in a very special local bar.

Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese is a unique, premium, award-winning Irish farmhouse cheese produced directly on Teresa’s family farm at the foothills of the Slieve Aughty mountains in Co. Galway.

Teresa is a qualified nurse who returned from overseas to start her business on the family farm. A fourth generation dairy farmer, Teresa’s family have been farming their land for over 200 years.

Teresa is passionate about empowering women in agriculture and creating jobs in rural Ireland.

Teresa’s dairy herd is composed of all pedigree Holstein Friesians and is considered a “closed herd.” This means no other cattle are brought in; they have all been born and bred on the farm. That closed herd produces Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese, a unique, premium Irish farmhouse cheese directly on the farm, a product and process the Roche family takes great pride in.
