Grass-fed isn’t a marketing label in Ireland. It’s simply the way it’s done, much of the time. As I made my way through the country on a 1,500 km food-centric road trip, I passed countless green pastures with the grazing cattle many of us associate with the Irish landscape. It’s this green, green grass that contributes to the character of the superior-quality dairy products. And I soon discovered that the cheese is worth a trip in itself.
