Funky Bleats

A funky cheese produced by Bleating Heart in Tomales, California, using a mixture of raw sheep (70%) and raw goat (30%) milk. A hand crafted cheese is aged for 2 to 3 months. During aging it is washed with a brine solution every week for 2 months. The resultant product has a funky, creamy rind. Under the rind, the firm and moist paste has complex and deep flavour with sheep and goat milk's aroma. The cheese has won a gold medal at the California State Fair 2014.
