All our cheeses are made soon after milking, as our milking stand backs directly onto our cheese room. The goats are not herded to milk but willingly follow Lindsey to the milking shed and jump up on the stand when it’s their turn! This contentment, proximity and freshness all contribute to the clean, sweet and mild flavours of our fresh cheeses.
Much as with fine wines, our cheeses are subject to seasonal variations due to the differing plants and herbs the goats are grazing and the resulting changes in milk. We aim for consistency in our cheeses but like to think of seasonal variations as part of the joy of our artisan product, made with love from our select herd of goats.
150g pottle. Shelf life: 14 days.
A smooth, fresh chèvre-style goats’ cheese, with an appealing hint of acidity and a mild citrus tang. Only the freshest milk is used to make our Lush Fresh, which allows the sweet creamy flavours to shine through.
Ideal for use in cooking, Lush works well in either sweet or savoury dishes. Pairs particularly well with any salmon dish where the high citrus notes of the cheese cut through the rich salmon flavour. Also goes beautifully with fresh fruit such as pears, strawberries and figs.
100g vacuum-packed. Shelf life: 12 weeks (unopened).
A firm, brined feta, a silver medal-winner at the 2016 NZ cheese awards. Brined for one week, then vacuum packed. Mouthwatering nutty, wholegrain flavours abound in this distinctive cheese. The mild saltiness of the feta balances its gentle acidity, giving a full mouthfeel and superb finish.
Frisky Feta can be used in cooked dishes, for example in spinach-style pies and pastries, or is ideal in a salad.
130g wrapped wedge. Shelf life: 8 weeks.
Our silver-award-winning Cheeky Camembert is distinctly sweet and nutty, with a natural white mould rind. Initially firm, as it matures the residual acidity in the cheese becomes more mellow and the texture and flavour take on a creamier consistency. Earthy umami notes abound. A show-stopping addition to an end-of-meal cheeseboard, serve by itself with crusty fresh bread or with a tart sweet fruit paste.
Best served at room temperature.
All our cheeses should be kept refrigerated below 5°C and consumed within four days of opening.
