Goats milk produces cheese with a strong flavors and aromas that may vary for several reasons. The breed of the goats, their diet, regional influences such as climate, altitude another environmental factors. How clean the facility is and how quickly the milk is cooled are to other factors that make a difference in taste. These are some of the reasons that goat cheese tastes different from different companies. At Maple Leaf Farm & Creamery we raise a herd of Nubian goats that produce the milk for our cheese. We picked them because of the sweet flavor of their milk and the higher butterfat. We control their diet and the hay they eat is grown here on our farm and we harvest it. If you have tried other goat cheese and were not crazy about it, I would like to encourage you to give ours a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
