Gabriel Faherty is famous for his delicious gouda, feta, boilies and mature goats cheese and along with his day job and family juggling, his life has just got a whole lot more hectic with the arrival of his fourth child! His beautiful Nubian and Saanen Goats graze on the unique pastures of the Aran Island. The climate is perfect for the grass herbs as the island is served by the Gulf Stream. The unique diet of the goats gives the cheese its unique, delicious flavour.
Extreme determination was needed to get his business off the ground, especially when located on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. However, Gabriel’s business is in full force, milking his own herd of goats and exporting to the mainland. Gabriel’s fresh goats cheese balls sprinkled with sea lettuce is deliciously soft and fresh and he can he found at various food fares around the country.
Gabriel is now running both Historical Island Tours and an Island tour that also includes a stop at the cheese factory with people given the chance to meet the goats, watch cheese being made, enjoy an educational commentary on goats, cheese and the Island life while you get to taste the cheese!
