Twig Farm Square Cheese

Twig Farm Square Cheese is a raw goat's milk farmstead cheese made by Michael Lee and Emily Sunderman at their farm in West Cornwall, Vermont. It is aged for 80 days, during which the cheese develops a semi-soft texture and a natural, rustic-looking mottled rind.

Flavours delicately flow between herbs, grass, and toasted nuts with lovely pungency from goat's milk. The cheese is matured in a tied cloth that gives it a square shape. Marks in the middle of the cheese point to the indentation from where the knot was tied. This is a seasonal cheese, available generally between June – February.

Square Cheese has won many awards, including a Third Place in the Farmstead Goat Cheese category at the American Cheese Society Competition in 2007.
