Pholia Farm has stopped making this cheese since 2016.
Elk Mountain is a raw goat's milk cheese made in the style of a Pyrenees tomme. It is aged for 6-8 months, during which its natural rind is rubbed with honey wheat ale to add a new dimension to the flavour of the cheese as well as give a lovely golden colour to the crust. It is a hard, dry cheese set with vegetarian, non-GMO rennet. The ivory-white interior is smooth and dense, with occasional holes or slits. The cheese is named after a mountain located near the farm and is also home to a large number of elks.
