1. Sotty Clementine
Oak Moon Farm & Creamery
The Sotty’s heady aroma gets its kick from careful aging and a mottled rind washed in syrah, merlot, or chardonnay. The Bakersville-based farm forms the cheese in several sizes (six to 16 ounces), which results in a pleasant variation in flavors.
2. Plain Jane
Three Graces Dairy
Expect earthy, velvety cheese from these farmstead producers in Marshall. This the perfect chèvre for brightening up fresh pasta
3. Fresh Chèvre
Ripshin Goat Dairy
Organic herbs grown on this farm in Happy Valley lend savory tones to the feathery spread. Look for the dairy’s chocolate goat cheese truffles around the holidays.
4. Rosemary Fig Chèvre
Spinning Spider Creamery
This sweet and creamy cheese with an earthy hint of herbs is one of the Madison County farm’s many inventive creations in their collection of award-winning cheeses.
