Why August?

Historically, that’s when goat cheese was at its tastiest, following a full summer of goats eating fresh forage.

Though dairies have long mastered the art of feeding goats fresh nutrition year-round, celebrating in August connects us to the traditions of goat cheese production while enjoying its modern innovations—including these distinctly delicious recipes.

All August long, elevate your appreciation for goat cheese while elevating your mealtime experiences.
