Nicholas Dunne's family have been farming land at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains, outside Courtnacuddy, County Wexford for two centuries. So you'd reckon they know the game inside out - and they do! Which is why their cows produce great milk, which makes great yogurt. We love it! As will all Good Food Ireland members, dedication to making the best possible product, coupled with a simple food philosophy, abides here. All the milk comes from the Dunnes herd of 170 Friesian cows farmed on this land. The yogurts contain only the finest ingredients, with nothing added or taken away, and absolutely no compromises on quality or taste. It's simple and it works!
Killowen yogurts were born twenty five years ago, in Killowen, County Wexford, and were the first artisan yogurts to be made in Ireland. Five years ago, the Dunnes took the helm and moved production to their own dairy farm, using the milk from their herd to make the yogurt. As such, it carries all the personality of sweet fresh milk, produced by a herd happily grazing on lush pastureland in the heart of the Irish countryside. Every part of the production takes place on the farm, from milking, to yogurt making to adding fruit to packaging and distribution - ticking all those vitally important traceability boxes.
Killowen is a naturally low fat bio-live yogurt made with a pro-biotic culture, to promote good health. Pro-biotic yogurts have been around for thousands of years - but today's modern way of thinking has put them right at the top of the list for aiding digestion and helping to maintain health from the inside out! So not only are you getting a product here that's natural, exclusive, made by dedicated people and tastes great - it's damn good for you too! It makes a great breakfast spoonful, a healthy dessert after dinner, or little treat anytime. The natural yogurt is great on porridge, or with soaked prunes or apricots. Or, stir a dollop into a curry or goulash just before the end of cooking. Killowen's flavoured yogurts, made with only finest real fruit, berries, nuts or spices, include strawberry, raspberry, forest fruits, rhubarb, hazelnut and vanilla. What a choice - something for everyone! The little pots are super in lunch boxes, whilst family sized tubs do the whole gang. In keeping with their own ethos, the Dunnes actively support other small local businesses, and are keen to source more fruit from the immediate locality of the farm. Wexford is famous for it's soft fruit production, so the range now includes superb luxury natural yogurt with a layer of blackcurrant puree, with berries fresh from the farm of fellow Good Food Ireland Provider Des Jefares. Its a gorgeous treat anytime, and makes an appearance on the breakfast buffet in The Merrion Hotel Dublin along with other yogurts from Killowen.
