Ballinvarrig cheddar is a raw milk cheddar from the Hegartys cheese company in Whitechurch, Co.Cork. It's made with traditional rennet differentiating it from Hegartys cheddar. The cheese is cloth bound and is matured in the traditional way. They are made in smaller moulds and each wheel weighs about 10kg. The raw milk gives the cheese more depth in flavour and a higher nutrional value.
The name Ballinvarrig is the name of the lands near their farm where the cows are pasturing in the summer.
