The pastures and rolling hills of this region provide an environment that allows goats to produce a high yield of excellent quality milk. This is one of France’s most popular goat cheeses without the ash coating often seen. The centre of the cheese remains chalky as the cheese softens elegantly under its characteristically wrinkly rind. Its flavour is rich and creamy with an increased nuttiness as the cheese ripens.
About Fromagerie Poitou Chevre
Fromagerie Poitou Chevre, Poitou-Charente France. It was in 1897 that farmers surrounding the Mothe Saint Héray came together to create the cooperative dairy la Mothe. During the twentieth century, the dairy specialised in cheese production, especially in goat cheese. In 1996, Poitou goat cheese, family business, took over the operation of the dairy, and is now dedicated to manufacturing goat cheeses such as Chabichou du Poitou and Ste Maure.
