When you want to taste the pure, fresh taste of Beekman goat cheese, choose plain. This mild cheese is made from 100% Farmer John's goat milk for a fresh taste, acidic edge, and a lemony aroma that's undeniably Beekman. We make this cheese in small batches that are only available from April-December, so get a taste while you still can. Each cheese is 5 oz per piece.
To give you the freshest cheese possible, we may ship your cheese separate from the rest of your order. Depending on the shipment's destination we only ship cheese on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays.
Keep refrigerated. Keeps for 4-6 weeks if sealed. Consume within the week once opened.
Each cheese is 5 oz per piece.
Pasteurized goat milk, calcium chloride, enzymes, cultures, salt
The First Taste Of Spring
Our plain chevre is created using the first flush aka the first milk that comes from our goats in the springtime. The timing of this milk means that our plain chevre is mild and creamy, similar to a tangier cream cheese.
Crumble over salads or stirr into a fresh pasta dish. It bakes perfectly on pizzas, into savory tarts and more. Pairs wonderfully with fruits, tart preserves and walnuts.
Meet the Artisan
One weekend our founders arrived at the farm to find a hand-written note in our mailbox. “My name is John Hall. I grew up in the area on a dairy farm, and I now have a herd of 80 goats. I am losing the place where I am farming. Could I please bring my goats to your property to graze?" Our founders both lost their jobs in the recession of 2008 and came very close to losing the farm, but they had their community of neighbors and that’s the way Beekman 1802 started. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When life gives you goats, you make anything you can with the milk.Learn More
