St. Germain Cheese from Blakesville Creamery

Bright, clean, aged goat's milk cheese.

When cheesemaker Veronica Pedraza was dreaming up her ideal goat cheese operation, she imagined she'd make all soft cheeses. And while she does make many excellent soft goat's milk cheeses, when Blakesville Creamery launched for business in the spring of 2020, she quickly realized that with restaurants shuttered and the world changing rapidly, the soft, perishable nature of soft cheeses were a risky proposition. She needed to add a harder, longer aged, more shelf stable cheese to the mix.

While I'd never say we're lucky to have experienced the pandemic, I'll certainly say we're lucky that Veronica and her team developed the St. Germain. Made from the pasteurized milk of the herd of 1500 goats that live on site at Blakesville Dairy Farm, it's aged for about four months, until it’s firm. The flavor starts off clean, bright, pleasant, nearly lemony, and becomes a little herby in the finish. Delicate, not overpowering in flavor, it’s appreciated equally by expert cheese aficionados and novice cheese eaters.

Pair it with dried fruit or a glass of dry white wine.
