Addictively delicious chevre

Can't believe that this tiny pinch of starter from New England cheese making supply makes a pound of the creamiest delicious chevre from a gallon of goats milk just by standing for a day. It's unbelievably easy and the cheese is half the price of what's available in the store !!!

Best Chèvre Ever!

I made this cheese with fresh goats milk from my Nigerians, and it was super easy to use and turned out so beautifully—best chèvre I’ve had, and my family all loved it! Thank you!

The Versatile Culture!

I've used this chevre culture to make chevre (obviously), aged goat cheese (recipe at this site and super, super YUM) and Belper Kolles, a Swiss parm-like cheese (recipe also at this site). If you're new to cheesemaking a Chevre is a great place to start. It's super easy, nearly failure-proof and creates a super delish cheese to astound and amaze your friends and family.

Adaptable culture

I simply add a teaspoon of blue cheese stirred in a quarter cup of water to the drained chevre curds and put them into a press. Age the resulting wheel in a 55 degree refrigerator for a month, turning daily, and the result is a delicious blue cheese.
