FROM ONE GOOD FAMILY TO ANOTHER

A TRADITION BORN ON THE FARMS OF WEXFORD

Our Farmers

The story of Wexford Creamery began more than half a century ago with a shared passion for dairy farming and a love for the community it supports, and is supported by in return.

In 1959 a group of far-sighted dairy farmers and a German entrepreneur called Herr Hoevelmeyer met in Wexford. The outcome of this uncommon assembly was Edelweiss Cheese Company – the forerunner of what we know today as Wexford Creamery.

GROWING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

Given the quality of Wexford’s climate, its lush green pastures, the happiness of its free-roaming cows and the superior quality of its milk, cream and cheese – it was no surprise when the business quickly became a success.

Since 1959 Wexford Creamery has continued to grow, modernising its plant and increasing staff numbers. More and more local farmers have partnered with Wexford Creamery and today more than half the dairy farmers in Wexford supply milk exclusively to us.

Today Wexford Creamery is an international business, an Irish success story operating in markets across Europe, North America and the Far East – but the heart of Wexford Creamery will always remain truly local. Wexford Creamery will always be the definitive flavour of the beautiful land that we’re lucky to call home.
