Saxelby Cheese Share: August 20

Cheese: Riley’s Coat (raw goat’s milk)

Farm: Blue Ledge Farm; Salisbury, Vermont

Amount: 1/3 lb.

What Saxelby has to say: A semi-firm, sweet and musty goats’ milk cheese from Vermont’s Champlain Valley.  Named for the cheesemakers’ beloved hound, Riley, this cheese is anything but dogged.  The flavor is milky and mellow, with a grassy, honeyed and floral flavor.  Aged between 4 to 5 months, during which time the cheese develops a beautifully rustic natural rind.
