Lively Run Dairy is one of the longest operating commercial goat dairies in the country, beginning production in 1982 in Interlaken, NY. They are pioneers of goat cheese in the United States domestic market, and have more recently expanded their selection to include delectable, award-winning cow milk cheeses.
Lively Run Dairy partners with local dairy farmers who practice high quality animal care and operate with a sound animal welfare program.
From top to bottom:
Shire Gouda Style, 8oz - Shire is the result of a collaboration with Hopshire Brewing in Dryden, NY. While making the gouda, they soak the curds in Shire Ale, a dark malty Scotch Ale. The resulting cheese is imbued with the toasty flavors of the dark malt and a slight coffee-like bitterness.
Lake Effect Cheddar, 8oz - Typically made the same day as the milking, Lake Effect Cheddar is made from extremely fresh, local cow’s milk. It is generally aged for six months and exhibits a nice blend of traditional cheddar “sharpness” with a pleasing nuttiness that is rare in American Cheddars
Sheldrake Moon, 8oz - Sheldrake Moon, named for the reflection of the moon on the waters of Cayuga Lake at Sheldrake Point, is a bloomy rind cheese, similar to Brie in style, made from whole cow milk. As the cheese ages, the paste breaks down into a lovely cream line that gives the cheese a lusciously rich texture. Lively Run Sheldrake Moon pairs excellently with dry Riesling and Champagne- style dry Ciders.
Milk: Pasteurized Cow Milk Rennet: Microbial Rennet (Vegetarian) Age: 3 to 4 weeks maximum
The trio set fits well in the Grotto Classico, Grotto Fresco, or Grotto Mezzo.
