Agri-food - Fivemiletown Creamery


For over a century Fivemiletown Creamery has sat nestled in the farmland of County Tyrone. With a longstanding history in butter and milk production, the company’s primary focus these days is on making cheese.

Fivemiletown is a cooperative-owned dairy society. This means that it’s owned by the farmers who provide it with milk. Known for its quality, and with many awards and recognitions for its cheeses, Fivemiletown takes great pride in using local milk to produce local cheese. Its products are so well received that today it markets them throughout the UK and Ireland as well as exports them to the US, Denmark, France and the Far East.
