If you are a regular to Kai Cafe and Restaurant you will know that the Bluebell Falls Goats Cheese is one of our favourites and appears quite regularly on the menu.
In order to support local suppliers, and in the continuing quest to find the best local ethical produce we love to serve Bluebell Falls.
The unique goats cheese is produced on the Keane family farm in County Clare, where goats are fed indoors on fresh grass which is cut once a day. The same grass is given to the animals in the morning and again in the evening.
After the goats have eaten they are free to roam outside in the sun(when we have it), and at the first sight of rain, they are all back under cover again.
Fresh grass makes up 85 per cent of the goats’ diet and the remainder is made up of barley, oats and wheat. The high quality flavour of the milk comes from the wide variety of grasses that they eat.
The cheese is produced every day with the goats milked twice daily.
Milk from the evening is stored overnight at 4 degrees and mixed with the following morning’s milk to make a range of quality cheeses.
Milk is not sourced from any outside farms allowing all the cheese to be completely produced on the farm.
Because the Keanes love what they do, and do it so well, we are able to get the best highest quality product delivered direct from the farm to the restaurant in small batches so we always have an excellent cheese to offer you guys.
If your interested in getting some cheese visit their website for a list of shops that stock the amazing cheese, or you can buy online. http://www.bluebellfalls.ie/index.php?ID=5
