Many of us have heard of Wisconsin cheddar cheese, but what about Wisconsin goat cheese?

Our goat cheese is manufactured in Belmont, Wisconsin — a charming village known for its picturesque farms and rolling hills, which are representative of how Belmont got its name; “Belle Monte” French for “beautiful hill”.  Keep reading for more info on how this delicious cheese is made and what pairs well with this tasty dairy delight.

Making Goat Cheese09_19_AJ_Deli_Image2jan

Small goat farmers in the Belmont region take great care of their herds the old-fashioned way and the result is exceptional milk for cheese making. Once the milk is harvested, it is pasteurized and cut into small curds. The resulting curds are pressed into small logs, which are then hand sprinkled with garlic and herbs to make the delicious cheese many have grown to love.

Perfect Pairings

Goat cheese has a distinct bright white color along with a soft and slightly crumbly texture. It has a strong, zesty flavor, which pairs well with crisp white or young red wines such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. Sauvignon Blanc will also pair well with this assertive cheese.

You can try it on crackers or stuffed in tasty foods like roasted peppers or figs. You can even crumble it on your salad at lunch. Feeling adventurous? Try this instead of regular goat cheese in our Chicken Pesto Ravioli with Blueberries and Goat Cheese or Pasta Florentine with Goat Cheese.

If you haven’t tried our Garlic and Herb goat cheese yet, you’ll want to put it on your shopping list today. You’ll love the taste of this flavorful cheese and we can’t wait for you to try it! Select stores even have Specialists eager to answer your cheese questions. Ask a manager next time you’re in.
