Cherry Glen Goat Cheese Co. is a unique to this area, 58 acre farm, in Boyds, Maryland within the Montgomery County Agriculture Reserve. The milk that goes into making their fine cheese comes from their many Alpine, La Mancha, Saanen and Toggenburg dairy goats. Being a true farmstead and "doing it all" give them the highest level of control - which they believe is important for the integrity of their product.
We currently have the following cheese available in our store...
MONOCACY SILVER - Farmstead Soft Ripened Goat Cheese
This is a soft-ripened half-pound cylindrical shaped cheese with a white mold exterior. It is more tangy and flavorful than most Brie but ripens to a similar creamy internal consistency. As with Brie, many prefer to eat the rind with the cheese. This great "go to" cheese works well anytime.
Ingredients: Pastuerized Goat Milk, Vegetable Culture, Enzymes, Salt
MONOCACY ASH - Farmstead Soft Ripened Goat Cheese
This soft-ripened two-layer cheese is very similar to the previous cheese, but has an edible ash coating and ash line through the center. Using the same culture as in the Silver, this more complex cheese tastes slightly different due to the alkalinity of the vegetable ash. Although we would not pair this with Champagne or dark chocolate - it ranks right up there. Decadent!
Ingredients: Pasteurized Goat Milk, Vegetable Culture, Enzymes, Salt, Vegetable Ash
MONOCACY CHIPOTLE - Farmstead Soft Ripened Goat Cheese
This cheese has the same format as the Silver and Ash. It comes on smoky and follows through with a wonderfully spicy finish. It is perfect for a savory breakfast strata or tart.
Ingredients: Pasteurized Goat Milk, Vegetable Culture, Enzymes, Salt, Chipotle Pepper
MONOCACY GOLD - Farmstead Soft Ripened Goat Cheese
The curd for the Gold is drawn at higher pH than the Silver or Ash. Not as heavy as Brie, this delicate, mild flavored cheese is smooth and silky. Sprinkle generously with dry crushed fennel and enjoy with your favorite crusty bread!
Ingredients: Pasteurized Goat Milk, Vegetable Culture, Enzymes, Salt
CHERRY GLEN FETA
Our Feta is aged in delicious brine that give is just enough salt and tang to please the pallet.
