Ali ladling the curd into the moulds for Golden Cross

Matt taking the Golden Cross out of moulds

Golden Cross is a log shaped goat’s milk cheese which can be eaten fresh or matured. Coagulation takes 24 hours before the curds are gently ladled into long moulds to form the log shape. The cheeses are lightly charcoaled prior to maturation when a velvety white penicillium mould develops on the surface.

  • When young the cheese has a fine, firm silky texture and fresh, citrus flavour.
  • As it matures the cheese becomes denser and creamier and develops stronger, more complex flavours.
  • Golden Cross is a versatile cheese that goes well on a cheeseboard or can be used for cooking and grilling.

  • It is a lovely cheeseboard cheese with a fresh, delicate creaminess.
