Goat Milk, Goat Cheese, & Goat Milk Kefir
Grade A Goat Milk
We pasteurize our goat milk in small batches in our own vat-pasteurizer for optimum freshness and we bottle it multiple times a week to be able to offer the freshest products to our customers. Because we are so small this process is very hands-on. Every bottle of milk is labeled by hand, filled by a person using a foot pedal operated pump, and capped by hand with our table top capping device. We have carefully monitored and ensured your milk has been handled in the cleanest possible way while maintaining the proper temperature controls necessary to maximize the quality and integrity of the milk. We take pride in producing fresh, high quality goat milk for your enjoyment.
Fresh Goat Cheese: Fromage Blanc
We primarily make one style of goat cheese. It is a fresh goat cheese that we call Fromage Blanc. Being quite soft and creamy it can be used in a variety of ways. Many of us like to just eat it on a cracker, however it is great on a salad or used in cooking. Sarah often likes to enjoy the Garlic/Pepper/Rosemary on her baked potatoes. Cara loves the Honey/Lime on an arugula salad with fresh berries and pecans. Use your imagination! There is no wrong way to enjoy cheese! One thing that makes our cheese stand apart from many other cheeses available is that we do not add any salt to our cheese. This makes it a great choice for those who are monitoring their salt intake or just prefer to enjoy unsalted cheese. Currently our flavors of Fromage Blanc are: Plain, Garlic/Pepper/Rosemary, Herbs de Provence, Honey/Lime, Red Tart Cherry, Cranberry, and Cranberry/Orange/Walnut. Not all flavors are available at all retail locations. Most flavors are available at our Farmer's Markets. Some flavors change with the seasons.
Aged Goat Cheese: Our newest product
We've been experimenting since last Fall with making an aged goat cheese. We have opened up two batches so far and sold everything we've cut! This is exciting news and we are thrilled to be able to share this tasty cheese with you. Just as in any other products' beginning stages of development, every cheese batch is going to be a bit different (at least for a little while, until we get the recipe perfected). We are so very open to your feedback however, and would love to hear what you think of the cheese you taste, and hopefully buy, from us as we work out all the kinks. The cheese is a tomme style goat cheese with a natural rind. Because of the natural rind, there can be a bit of a strong taste to the rind, which is edible. Some people love this about these types of cheeses, but you are certainly encouraged to decide for yourself if you are a rind eater or not! Currently, this cheese will only be available at our Farmer's Market sales outlets. Come see us at a market to get a taste!
Goat Milk Kefir
One of our newest products we have available is our own Goat Milk Kefir. This product is currently available in both plain and blackberry-blueberry-pomegranate flavor. If you are not familiar with kefir, it is a deliciously tangy, fermented dairy product. It is similar to a drinkable yogurt, as it has lots of live active cultures in it that many people believe to be good for your digestive tract. Our goat milk kefir is made in small batches to ensure quality and freshness.
