Product Description

Dense and smooth with a satisfying crunch. The goat cheese for people who think they don't like goat cheese.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Holland
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Goat
Rennet Type: Vegetarian Rennet

The Flavor Experience

Sweet, but more of a lactic sweetness than the typical caramel sweetness found in cow milk Goudas.  Brown butter tones carry on and on and on, before leaving the palate with a clean finish.

The Story

Produced in Holland exclusively for Cypress Grove in Humboldt County, California, Midnight Moon perfectly unites the Dutch expertise of Gouda-making with Cypress Grove's otherworldly penchant for fine goat cheese.  The result is sublime.  We love to suggest this to customers who claim they don't like goat cheese, because it is so different from the fresh, tart flavor we have come to expect from chevre. 

Usage Tips

Pair with a Belgian Tripel style, like Victory Golden Monkey.  Zinfandel, Syrah and dessert wines are lovely partners as well, and consider fig jam for something non-alcoholic.

Sorry, this cheese cannot ship via Ground to the western US. Please select expedited shipping upon checkout if shipping west of the Mississippi River. We will make every effort to contact you and suggest a shipping upgrade if you mistakenly select ground shipping.


Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"I remember when this cheese was first introduced, and everyone wondered whether or not it could live up to Midnight Moon. While it might not be as iconic, it is every bit as tasty, and can be enjoyed in every season" — Hunter F., CCP

    Midnight Moon cheese is out of this world, has a nutty, sharp taste and nothing compares to it with the exception of Black Betty. It is excellent in arugula salad with roasted pine nuts, kumato tomatoes with a homemade dressing of olive oil, dash of black truffle oil and lemon. Salt & pepper .I order multiple at one time so I never run out!!! LOVE THIS CHEESE....
