Welcome to CAIS – The Association of Irish Farmhouse Cheesemakers!
Irish Farmhouse Cheeses represent creativity and innovation with respect for traditional, craft and simplicity. Our cheeses offer the complex world of retailing and foodservice a simple product which appeals to today’s consumer. Traceability of Irish farmhouse cheese extends not just to a region, but to a small valley, a townland, a family. Through the CAIS network, we work together to share experiences, pool resources, network and troubleshoot, while promoting our sector under the Irish Farmhouse Cheese umbrella.
