Featured Cheese of The Week: Mt. Sterling Mild Raw Goat’s Milk Cheddar
We often have customers looking for a goat milk cheddar that’s not too “goaty.” This happens sometimes because they can’t have the traditional cow’s milk cheese, and sometimes because they just want to try something new. Regardless of the reason, it’s always our pleasure to show them to Mt. Sterling Co-op Creamery’s Mild Goat Cheddar. Made in Mt. Sterling, Wisconsin from raw, RBGH-free goat’s milk sourced from farmer-owner goat dairies throughout the state, the mild cheddar is semi-firm, smooth, a little crumbly, slightly nutty, and truly very mild when it comes to “goatiness.” Sound good? It is: this mild goat cheddar won 2nd Place at the ACS competition in 2006 and the Bronze at the World Championship of Cheese in 2002. If you’d like to try some, this delicious cheese is sold in two forms: blocks, which are excellent for cutting, snacking, and grating; and slices, which are convenient for sandwiches, cooking, and snacking as well.
