Gubbeen Farmhouse Products Review
About 27 km (17 miles) west of Skibbereen, farmer Tom Ferguson tends a herd of prize cows, whose rich milk is made into creamy cheese by his wife, Giana. The fresh-straw piggery allows its lucky pigs to have a view of Roaring Water Bay, one of the most scenic corners of Ireland. Tom and Giana's son, Fingal, runs the smokehouse (great smoked bacon, chorizo, and salamis), while daughter Clovisse grows organic fruit, vegetables, and herbs. Products are sold at Neal's Yard in London and West Cork's Farmers' Markets. Groups of up to 8 people can prebook a tour of the farm, dairy and smokehouse, culminating in lunch at the kitchen table. (€40 per person).
