Moonglo is a raw goat milk tomme-style cheese made by Prairie Fruits Farm near Champaign, in southern Illinois. It is a washed rind cheese, aged approximately for three to four months. The cheese rind is washed with a "tea" made from Moonglo Pear leaves.

Moonglo has a dense bone-white paste with a few eyes scattered throughout. The colour starts becoming darker as it reaches towards the edge of the bright orange rind. Flavours are sharp and nutty with notes of ripe fruits, caramel and truffles and a light citrusy tang. As it melts well, Moonglo makes for a perfect gourmet grilled cheese.
