Cabra La Mancha

FireFly Farms

Cabra La Mancha
Regular price $17.00 Sale

A beefy and rustic washed rind goat’s milk cheese from Firefly Farms in Accident, Maryland. The wheels are washed with a brine solution twice a week, for 10 weeks, to develop their signature meaty, goaty, pungent flavor profile. The semi-firm wheels are quite unique in the cheese-scape - Cabra la Mancha brings the funk while maintaining a slightly firmer texture than most washed-rind cheeses. Firefly Farms sources their goat milk from a cooperative of Amish farms in Maryland and Pennsylvania, which helps bolster their rural agricultural economy. Pairing notes: light, earthy red wines like Rioja and Cabernet Franc, dry ciders, light acidic white wines like Chenin Blanc, and Pinot Grigio, beers like lagers, ales, and pilsners.
