2nd Place, American Cheese Society, American Made/International Style 2013

  •  Raw Caromont Farm farmstead goat’s milk
  •  Natural rind, semi-firm, enzymatic
  •  Kid rennet

  •  2.2 pounds (average weight) per wheel

Caromont Farm is close to the tiny village of Esmont – one road, no stoplight, and the kind
of small town post office of a bygone era. This cheese is named for our home town.
A small rustic tomme, made in an Italian basket mould. The Esmontonian begins with notes
of minerality, a touch of citrus, and finishes with a delicate earthy aroma and a toasted maple
note. With age expect a more picante note and a dry grana like texture.
