This cheese plate put together by Rebecca at Barn First includes three pieces of their goat cheese at four to five ounces each: Half Cowles (ash-ripened and slightly tart), Valdes Blue (firm and bright), and Giguere (nutty and sweet). A great way to sample some very special cheeses. Contains unpasteurized goat milk.
Barn First's American Alpine breed of dairy goats produce milk that has about the same fat content and protein density as cow's milk, but there are some differences. Because the fat molecules in goat's milk are smaller than they are in cow's milk, the milk isn't as likely to separate and the smaller fat molecules make the milk easier for humans to digest. In fact, a lot of people who have trouble digesting cow's milk are able to drink goat's milk. .
The 3 cheese pairings where really fantastic!!! Our cheese platter on Christmas Eve was killer with these and Bailey Hazen and Harbison!!! Over the top Fabulous!
