Pleasant Creek

Pleasant Creek is a Gruyere-style goat's milk cheese made by Pholia Farm Creamery and Dairy. It is aged for 7-9 months in the Pholia caves during the winter months. The naturally present red moulds in the caves give the cheese a reddish rind, thus making it a thermophilic, cave-aged cheese. It is suitable for vegetarians as it is set with vegetarian, non-GMO rennet. The yellow interior is smooth, moderately eyed with mild, buttery and nutty flavours and grassy and fruity notes. The cheese is named after a tributary to Evans Creek that flows near the farm.
