When Jeffa Gill began making cheese on her farm in 1979, it was part of her pioneering spirit and drive to provide for her family from her own small-holding in West Cork. Jeffa also wanted to capture something of the goodness of this ancient farming land in her unique, hand-crafted cheeses. Today, almost four decades later, Durrus cheeses are still made by hand, using traditional techniques on their own farm.
