Cypress Grove Chevre Cheese

Mary Keene, the founder of Cypress Grove Chevre, is a pioneer and recognized leader in artisanal cheese making in the U.S. Her innovative range of fresh, aged and ripened cheeses are nationally and internationally awarded for excellence. It started way back, in 1970s when Mary wanted a source of healthful milk for her children and she began raising Alpine goats. Her herd began winning numerous awards and while her goat stock continued to improve and grow, she was faced with an unexpected surplus milk; Mary made her first steps in cheese making.

From the very beginning Mary strove to make the highest quality, and best-tasting artisanal cheeses, but market acceptance was slow. It took quite a few years before consumers developed a palate for the smooth, delicate flavors of Cypress Grove cheeses. Mary used this period of slow, steady growth to take special care of her customers and to work in conjunction with other goat cheese pioneers to develop the American market. Patience, hard-work and a commitment to quality paid off and over time, a large, loyal following began to seek out the Cypress Grove label.

Today, renowned for its innovative range of fresh, aged and ripened cheeses and internationally awarded for excellence, Cypress Grove is a leader in the domestic goat cheese market.

Our featured Cypress Grove Chevre Cheese

Cypress Groves' Midnight Moon is a hard artisanal goat's milk cheese that is made in Holland exclusively for Cypress Grove and has been aged for at least 6 months.

This gouda-style cheese has an ivory color interior that is slightly darker closer to the rind. The cheese is smooth with a dense texture and you will experience little crunches of protein crystals and these crunches participate in the cheese's personality. Midnight Moon, like many other Cypress Grove cheeses was awarded many medals in international cheese competitions.

The flavor is nutty and buttery and really not goaty, like the fresh goat cheese; there is more a creamy caramel flavor that lingers. This artisan California cheese is finished in a beautiful black wax that spotlights the pale paste.

Showcase your cheese platter with Midnight Moon and bring out all its qualities by serving with fig jam and seeded crackers or bread.

Try melted between slices of rustic sliced bread or as a decadent addition to macaroni and cheese. It is paired well with a stout or a Belgian Dark or if wine is your preference, try a zinfandel or Syrah.

An entire wheel of Midnight Moon weighs about 9 pounds and we hand-cut this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
