Hildene Goat Tomme is a semi-firm cheese made from raw milk. Each wheel is washed in a salt brine fro the first month of aging to develop an orange patina and fruity aroma. While the washing gives the cheese a little extra funk the complexity of our goat’s milk still shines through: peppery, sweet and savory all at once. Hildene Goat Tomme is aged at least 3 months and is made in 4-5 pound wheels.
A raw goat milk cheese, aged about 80 days. The cheese features a natural rind and a semi-hard texture. The milk for this cheese is made with the milk from pastured goats on our farm and from the farm of Dan Robertshaw, an off-the-grid dairy in Bridport, VT. Tomme was a ribbon winner at the American Cheese Society competition in 2006.
