Twig Farm Goat Tomme

Michael Lee and Emily Sunderman are partners in life and in cheesemaking. They have been making cheese on their idyllic 20-acre dairy farm just outside of Middlebury, Vermont, since 2005. A small herd of pastured milking does produces most of the milk for their aged raw milk cheeses, and the farm also sources additional goat and cow milk from neighboring dairies. Lee, a former cheesemonger who honed his craft at Vermont's Peaked Mountain Farm, uses traditional cheesemaking methods along with careful affinage techniques to create award-winning cheeses with stunningly beautiful rinds.

An earthy, soft gray-brown rind covers this dainty drum of firm, aged goat cheese. Underneath, the paste offers bright flavors of herbs and grass, a perfect reflection of the clean, delicious milk that Twig Farm's goats produce.
