La Petite Tomme

Lazy Lady Farm - Westfield, Vermont

A creamy, buttery little disc of goat cheese from Vermont’s original goat lady, Laini Fondiller. When young, La Petite Tommes are mushroomy and tangy, when aged they become more gooey, goaty and sweet. Either way you slice it, they’re one of our favorites, and a stalwart in the Lazy Lady repertoire. Aged 4-6 weeks.

La Roche

Lazy Lady Farm - Westfield, Vermont

In French, La Roche means the rock.  Well, if we ever found ourselves on a mountainside littered with La Roches, they would have to roll us back down. This bell-shaped goat cheese is absolutely decadent, with a paste that texturally evokes such wonders as whipped cream, freshly fallen snow, and light, creamy fresh chevre.  These delicate rounds of cheese have a certain beguiling floral and goaty flavor that makes them utterly unique. Aged 4-6 weeks.

Lady in Blue

Lazy Lady Farm - Westfield, Vermont

A delicate, milky and mild blue from Lazy Lady Farm. This cheese is made only during the fall and winter months when the cheese cave at Lazy Lady Farm is at the optimum temperature to ensure proper aging. Since Lazy Lady is entirely solar and wind-powered, the cave has no refrigeration device other than the earth that covers it. The small wheels age for 2 months in the cave and develop a beautiful blue mold on the exterior of the cheese as well as in the paste. A unique and delicious seasonal treat!

Lake’s Edge

Blue Ledge Farm - Salisbury, Vermont

Named for the shore of the great lake Champlain, which straddles the border between Vermont and New York. Lake’s Edge is a musky and zippy little number with a pencil-thin wisp of vegetable ash running through the center. The paste is chalky and concentrated, but has a magnificent melt in your mouth quality that brings just the right amount of tang. Made from the milk of Blue Ledge Farm’s herd of Alpine and La Mancha goats. The delicate bloomy rind envelops the cheese over its 6 week ripening period.

Landaff

Landaff Creamery - Landaff, New Hampshire

Landaff is a real tart... Just the way we like our cheeses. Made from raw milk from Deb and Doug Erb’s award-winning herd of Holsteins, Landaff has the pucker and twang to rival some of the finest cheeses from the British Isles. The Erb family got out of the commodity milk game and into the artisanal cheese game after meeting up with the Kehler brothers up at Jasper Hill Farm. They traveled to England to apprentice with the Duckett family, who make Caerphilly, a classic Welsh cheese, and tweaked their technique to create an American original. Landaff is made at the Erb’s New Hampshire farm and then aged for 5-7 months in the Cellars at Jasper Hill, tended and coddled by the cheese elves of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

Les Pyramides

Lazy Lady Farm - Westfield, Vermont

A beautiful snowy white pyramid of bright and tangy goat cheese. The light bloomy mold encrusting Les Pyramides is redolent of earthy, mushroomy flavors, and just underneath the rind is a tart and creamy layer of ripening paste. The interior remains chalky and dense - reminiscent of the fine French chevres of the Loire Valley. Aged 4-6 weeks.
