What is goat’s cheese and how is it made – News + Articles
Fresh artisan goat’s cheese is at its peak in spring and we are here to celebrate it! Pastures are abundant with new grass shoots, pods and stalks, which goats – being the natural grazers that they are – happily tear off and munch. This fresh new feed infuses goat’s milk with vitamins, minerals and flavours that are transformed into some phenomenal cheese.
The composition of milk in different animal breeds is one of the key factors determining cheese characters. Goat’s milk has shorter fatty acid chains than cow’s milk, which amplifies all its flavour traits, leaving little room to hide defects but also showcase the seasonal milk’s unique qualities. It has gentle, creamy aroma and taste, with bright lemony notes.
