The brand began in the Kingston’s kitchen in Drimoleague in 1997, making cheesecakes and yoghurts for the local country market as a way of making use of an abundant supply of milk.

The company now employs over 60 people, producing a wide variety of yoghurts using milk from neighbouring farms. 

Alan and Valerie celebrated their achievements recently with their whole team, together with their families, by taking the team on a boat trip to the Fastnet Rock lighthouse.
