Cypress Grove Chèvre is the leading producer of artisanal American goat cheese. Founded in 1983 by Mary Keehn and based in Arcata, California, Cypress Grove continues its tradition of innovation and excellence by introducing award-winning, original cheeses to the marketplace.

In fact, “excellence” doesn’t even come close. Take it from our contributor, Mark Scarbrough, who knows a thing or two about goats (and by extension, goat cheese). He spent more than a year traveling the U.S. and Canada researching a book on the subject, after all. His favorite? Grassy, sassy Midnight Moon Goat Gouda, which you’ll get to sample should you be lucky enough to win our giveaway.

This delicious prize package features a Cypress Grove insulated lunch tote, filled with:

  • Humboldt Fog Mini—Cypress Grove’s signature offering; creamy and luscious with a subtle tangy flavor and ribbons of edible vegetable ash
  • 1 lb. slice Midnight Moon—Pale, firm goat gouda, aged six months or more; dense and smooth with a nutty, brown-butter flavor and notes of caramel
  • 1 lb. slice Lamb Chopper—A mild sheep milk cheese, buttery in color and flavor with a long, complex finish; an enchanting table or cooking cheese
  • 12 oz. slice Truffle Tremor—Truffle flavor in the velvety perfection of ripened goat milk cheese; earthy, elegant, and sophisticated
  • 4 oz. disk Purple Haze—Lavender and fennel pollen give this cheese a delightful, sweet flavor to complement its acidity
  • 4 oz. disk Herbs de Humboldt—Fresh herbed goat cheese with a creamy texture and sublime taste
  • 4 oz. disk Natural—Classic goat cheese at its creamiest best

Wondering what to do with all that cheese? Serve some with Mark Scarbrough and Bruce Weinstein’s Arugula Salad with Country Ham, Pears, and Honey Vinaigrette.
