California Crottin

California Crottin is Redwood Hill Farm's version of French classic Crottin de Chavignol. It has a wrinkly, geotrichum candidum rind with a dense, tangy, fluffy texture that firms and dries as it ages. Flavours are robust, earthy with a lingering taste of mushroom.

This is an award-winning cheese having been the Best in Show at the American Dairy Goat Association National Cheese Competition and Best Farmstead Goat Cheese at the prestigious American Cheese Society.

California Crottin is also available is a larger size. Redwood Hill Farm has christened it "Terra" based on the French word "terroir."
