About Our Cheese
The best of Vermont, in one 6 oz cup! Plain savory pasteurized goat cheese, mixed with sweet Vermont Maple Syrup and you have the perfect spread for crackers, toast, or the center of a fruit plate.
Lake's Edge: Perhaps our signature cheese, this dramatic ash-veined pasteurized goat cheese is aged for three weeks and is named after the stones found along our Lake Champlain. Named one of the "Best 100 Cheeses of the World" by Wine Spectator Magazine, this cheese is complimented by a light red wine such as a Pinot Noir.
Fresh Chevres: With a creamy, fresh and pillowy texture, our pasteurized chevre has converted many-a-skeptic over to goat cheese! Our curds are all hand-ladeled which results in the light consistency of our fresh cheeses. We make a plain chevre, as well as herb crusted, pepper crusted and maple infused! They all pair well with a light white wine, or a lighter beer (though the pepper chevre can hold it's own with a darker brew).
Camembrie: Made with fresh pasteurized Ayrshire cow's milk, this is a smooth mold-ripened Camembert/Brie hybrid! A buttery slice of bovine heaven! Goes well with a light red or white wine. A great match for any type of cured meats as well!
Crottina: This is the cheese that "put us on the map" when it took a first place award in the American Cheese Society competition in 2006. Since then it has won loyal goaty fans for it's classic simplicity. Aged for three weeks, the texture of this pasteurized cheese is velvety and smooth, with a white mold exterior. It goes well with a Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc wine. We love this cheese with a dollop of honey!
La Luna: A favorite with kids and "foodies" alike, La Luna is a raw goat's milk original. Compared to a gouda or a havarti, this cheese is subtle yet presents a nice lingering tanginess. We grate this on our pizza! It pairs well with a medium brew beer.
Riley's 2x4: A raw goat and cow's milk original!A natural rind cheese, aged over three months. This cheese has a nutty and tangy flavor, is a sliceable or grateable, and goes swimmingly with a nice dark beer! Why 2x4? Well, we think this cheese is sturdy and non-pretentious like the lumber; plus, goats have two teats and cows have four!
A raw cow’s milk blue, made with Ayrshire milk from the cows next door. Aged sixty days, it is both creamy and crumbly and dare we say “town meets gown”, that unique experience when good earthy Vermont grit meets smooth high brow academia with nothing short of poetic results. Winner of Yankee Magazine's "Editor's Choice Award" November 2013!
