Goldette Tommette

Raw Milk • Lightly Washed Rind • Aged 2-3 months
Goldette Tommette cheese from Bleating Heart

A little golden cheese, "Goldette Tommette" is a 1.5 lb semi-firm wheel with a lightly washed rind. Made from rich raw jersey milk, at 2 to 3 months of age the cheese has a firm but creamy mouth feel, pleasing aroma & a nice buttery tang. We think of her as the slim blonde cousin of our "Fat Bottom Girl" sheep cheese. The name is inspired by the paste's golden hue - thanks to the jersey cow milk - and suggests a touch of sass, which is present from the subtly funky microbes that grow on the rind.

Buff Blue

Raw Water Buffalo Milk • Natural Rind • Aged 3-4 months
Water buffaloes

We like big buffs and we cannot lie. Did you know we are the only cheesemakers in the United States making water buffalo milk blue cheese? This was not a goal we set for ourselves, it was never part of our business plan - we just got lucky. Water buffalo dairies are extremely rare in North America, but it just so happens that we have a friend who milks a small herd of water buffalo nearby. His dairy is known as Double 8 Dairy, and is a short 9 mile drive from our creamery.
