Noble Goat Feta Cheese from Noble Springs Dairy

Noble Springs Feta is our version of the traditional Greek cheese. Our feta is aged in a brine before being packaged. It has a tangy and salty flavor and is a firm cheese that is great for crumbling. Our Feta is great in a Greek salad with fresh tomatoes, olives and onions, it can be used in a quiche or is a great salty complement to sweet watermelon salad.


From their website: “At Noble Springs Dairy we produce a variety of all natural farmstead goat cheeses. We also bottle and sell Grade A Fluid Goat Milk. Our goats are allowed to browse on our rolling pastures at their leisure. Our cheeses have a distinctive flavor that is due to the forage based diet and special care our animals receive. Here at Noble Springs Dairy, Dustin and Justyne have over 40 combined years of experience in providing exceptional care to dairy goats.” “Quality milk comes from healthy, happy animals. Our high quality milk is the most important ingredient in our cheese making process. All of our products are created at our farm, in our creamery, by us and from only the milk our goats produce. We gently pasteurize our milk in a small vat pasteurizer, this allows us to pasteurize our milk at145 degrees. Our milk is never mechanically homogenized.”

Tasting notes: A soft and supple texture and barn-yardy aroma, along with notes of cultured butter, shiitake mushroom, and walnuts make it a stand out on the cheese plate.

Pairs nicely with: Pinot Noir, Chignin Blanc, Trappist ales, French farmhouse ciders, marmalades and preserves (in particular grapefruit), dark chocolate, and fresh in-season peaches. Works wonderfully in a classic Tartiflette recipe.
