In 1997 Valerie began using this milk to make homemade cheesecakes for the local country market. Her cheesecakes, made with fresh, simple ingredients, quickly gained popularity and from that small beginning Glenilen Farm began.
What started as a hobby continued to grow, and in doing so transformed our small farm into a hive of activity. Soon we needed a little help keeping up with demand. Nowadays Sam and his team help us make the products, Margaret keeps the office going while Avril and Tadhg together with Alan and Valerie look after the business end of things.
Most days Alan can still be found on the farm, with Valerie in the kitchen experimenting with new mouth-watering recipes. There’s never a shortage of willing taste-testers, but she knows that Sally (12), Grace (10) and Ben (7) are her toughest audience!
We convert all of our milk into delicious products using only the best quality ingredients, reflecting our steadfast belief in the goodness of wholesome, natural food. All our milk is sourced from Glenilen and neighbouring farms. This milk is the main ingredient in all our products. For ingredients we can’t supply ourselves, we search for the best quality ingredients from suppliers who care as much about their products as we do about ours. In doing so we ensure that our products are made using the best ingredients available.
All our products contain absolutely no additives or preservatives, for a pure authentic farmhouse taste.
