Made from raw goat milk, Danby is a hard, extra-aged cheese made in the style of Italian sardos like Piave and Asiago. It is aged for a minimum of six month during which it develops a pure, dense white paste with firm, smooth texture and a rich flavour. The cheese is named after the town of Danby, VT, famous for its pristine white marble.
Danby is ideal for grating over pastas or even on its own as a nice snack. It is available October through May in 20-pound wheels.
