Our Goats & their Milk
Our goats graze happily outside the door of the milking parlour and cheese production facility. Together they provide a high yield of milk with the right balance of richness and taste.
Full of essential nutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium but also vitamins A & B.
This is where our cheesemakers do their magic. Morning and evening milk is used to make each daily batch of Bluebell Falls goats cheese. Making goats cheese is a traditional natural process, with milk transferred direct from the milking parlour to the dairy each day.
Besides the milk we use knowledge and skill to make our great tasting cheeses. And that is just what Breda, our cheesemaker, brings to the table. With her team she takes care of production and packaging. Morning and evening milk is used to make each daily batch of Bluebell Falls goats cheese.
The recipe & traditional process
Making goats cheese is a traditional natural process, with milk transferred direct from the milking parlour to the dairy each day. The milk is chilled, pasteurised, and made into curds with vegetarian rennet.
Once set, the curds are hung to strain for several hours in natural muslin bags, before the cheese is salted, rolled into a traditional log shape and hand packed. This is a young goat’s cheese, ready to eat a couple of days after making.
State of the art facility
Goats cheese is very healthy!
Goats cheese is an obvious choice as it contains less than 1% salt and twice the protein and half the fat compared to cows milk.
But there is more:
- It is also a good source of calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin K, phosphorus.
