Merry Goat Round | Spruce Reserve
A special, limited edition cheese, coming soon!
"We were excited to locate spruce straps from our supplier. Spruce trees are common here in the mountains of western Maryland. They are part of our terrior. The wood straps support the cheese as it ripens and give a wonderful earthiness to the taste of the cheese. "
Spruce Reserve is wrapped in a natural spruce-wood strap and carefully aged until the cheese body is fully ripened, creamy, and spreadable. The top rind of the Spruce Reserve is cut and removed from the cheese, with the support of the spruce wood strap, the body of the cheese is spooned out and savored. World-renowned celebrity chef Jose Andres, who first encountered FireFly Farms’ hand made goat’s milk cheeses at the FRESHFARM Dupont Circle farmers market, inspired Merry Goat Round Spruce Reserve.

As with all of FireFly Farms' aged cheeses, we suggest unwrapping Spruce Reserve and bringing it to room temperature 30 minutes prior to consuming.
