Humboldt Fog by Cypress Grove Chevre
As Americans have developed a deeper appreciation for great cheese, a change in American cheese making has occurred. Across the country, small-scale dairy farmers and cheese makers are making wonderful cheeses to rival those of Europe. One of these cheeses is Humboldt Fog. With a central layer and outer covering of ash, this goat's milk tome ripens with a soft, white interior. When cut, it is reminiscent of the early morning fog. Humboldt Fog is made by Cypress Grove Chevre, which is owned and operated by mother and daughter team, Mary Keehn and Malorie McCurdy, in Humboldt County, California, among the towering redwood trees. These amazing women have an enviable passion for their work that has been rewarded by national awards, reputation, and a steadily growing business. American farmstead cheeses often command a hefty price due to their limited production, but one bite will convince you that the luxury is worth the cost. This striking cheese comes in a 15-ounce mini-wheel with a charming paper wrapper.
Made from pasteurized goat's milk.
