Greenbang probably won’t cover a lot of cheese stories – but this one takes the biscuit (get it?). Sorry.
Patrick Berridge’s cheese won a gold prize at the World Cheese Awards last month – partly because of its production method.
They produce their own electricity by pumping anything left over after making the cheese into an anaerobic digester which breaks the waste down and produces bio-gas. This bio-gas is used to run a generator which produces the electricity for the farm. It’s only one of 4 such systems in Ireland at the moment.
