Goat cheese has always been my favorite type of cheese. I love it for the creamy, tangy flavors, slightly pungent earthiness and the versatility in recipes. Noble Springs Goat Cheese is one of my favorite local products and I am happy to share my enthusiam about these Tennessee products! Just Plain Chèvre makes me happy. It’s the purest of pure heaven. You will find this fresh,creamy and tangy goat cheese in my salads, on crostini and in just about any recipe that I can put it in.

Read the beautiful family story about how they began the dairy in the beautiful rolling hills in Franklin, Tennessee. You will see why the goats are so happy and content!

Noble Springs Goat Cheese can be enjoyed thorough the year and you don’t need a special occasion. BUT, the Holiday Season is just around the corner. A Holiday Cheese Platter with these cheeses will surely make everyone happy too!

Here are some of my favorite Noble Springs Farmstead Dairy Goat products. Each can be enjoyed simply on a cracker or in your favorite recipe or one of theirs.

Busy Bee is 4 oz log of goat cheese coated with tart dried cranberries and sweet honey. Spread over toasted cranberry nut artisan bread.

Feta Farmstead Goat Cheese is a 4 oz firm block of briny, tangy and great for crumbling in a salad or sliced to enjoy as is.

Garlic and Dill Chèvre is a 4 oz log of goat cheese. The garlic and dill enhances the earthy, tangy flavors. Perfect for crackers and wine.

Pimento Goat Cheese: This is a 5 oz tub of deliciousness. Savory spices and red pimentos is one of my favorite flavor combos which inspired the recipe below.
