Lavistown is a semi-hard Caerphilly style cheese made using partially skimmed, pasteurized organic cow's milk. One of Ireland's oldest Farmhouse cheeses, Lavistown is made by Knockdrinna Farmhouse Cheese at their cheese dairy in Stoneyford.

The dusty ochre natural brushed rind enrobes a buttery yellow paste with a creamy buttermilk flavour. As the cheese ages from 2 months up to 8 months, the texture becomes drier and harder. The cheese has a sharp acidic and green, leafy taste. It is made in the shape of millstones. Made from vegetarian rennet.
