This cheese is a blend of our Gouda, Manchego and White Cheddar. There is so much flavor in this cheese, this combination is fantastic together. It does not melt as well as a curd or a Monterey Jack cheese would, but it melts enough to give you all the wonderful flavor that you want. It is great on a grilled cheese, on a salad, or eggs. It is so good!!!Remember all the chew was made here with our goat’s milk and aged in our cave before we shred it. The amount of flavor it adds to any dish is a must have.
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.
