Teresa Roche is a highly qualified nurse who spent 15 years working all over the world before returning home to Loughrea and the family dairy farm in 2016. Always interested in farming, she was looking for a way to increase the value of the milk produced on the farm and decided to go with making cheese.

Never one to hang around and with support from her parents, later in 2016 Teresa converted a sheep shed into a cheese house and by 2018 she had started production of Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese.
