Merry Goat Round

Merry Goat Round is our best-selling retail cheese for good reason. Actually, quite a few reasons. The super creamy texture. The oh-so-clean flavor. And that rind? It’s soft and bloomy and is edible at any stage of ripening. (Little secret: the fullest flavor is concentrated in the rind. You’re welcome.) Chefs and caterers agree, this one deserves a giant ‘round’ of applause.

Firefly Farms Merry Goat Round Cheese

The Fable

Climb on. Enjoy the ride.

All baby goats love to play. They kick their heels up in the sheer joy of being alive. They butt heads over nothing.They race up and down the grassy meadow or climb up trees. They’re like little balls of pure energy. And all that movement inspired us to create a cheese that was round, playful, and energetic. And oh so merry!

Our fresh goat milk is first pasteurized and cooled to the perfect temperature for bacteria to do their best work. Since goat milk reacts differently from cow’s milk to fungi, we fortify ours with Penicillium Candidum (a.k.a. “The secret sauce”).

Vegetarian rennet is added, coagulating the milk and creating a stronger curd mass bond, faster, which is then cut into cubes, stirred,, drained of whey, stirred again, then drained again. From there, it’s scooped into molds, brined, and aged.

During this time, you’ll find our makers regularly flipping the cheese to ensure even moisture and rind development. When ready, it’s reminiscent of the familiar Camembert or smaller-format goat’s milk Brie, but with a personality all its own.

Pasteurized Goat Milk, Salt, Enzymes, Cheese Cultures

This product contains milk, and FDA-designated “big-8” allergen. Note that in January 2023, the big-8 allergens become the big-9 with the addition of sesame.
