Aged Goat Milk Cheese Made Exclusively For Cypress Grove in Holland
Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon® is a blushing, ivory-colored goat cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. Similar to a Gouda, as Midnight Moon® ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Know someone who (gasp!) doesn’t like goat cheese? Encourage them to dip their toes back in the water with Midnight Moon®, which has been known to convert even the staunchest of goat cheese critics.
Serve with fig jam and seeded crackers or bread.
Serve alongside a dirty martini, a classic old fashioned, or hard kombucha

- How do I store Midnight Moon?
To optimize the quality of Midnight Moon, keep cheese cold (32°–44.6°F).
To maintain original condition after cutting keep cheese wrapped tightly in plastic wrap to prevent drying.
Remove Midnight Moon from the refrigerator at least one hour before serving.
Midnight Moon has a microbial (non-animal) rennet type. Whole wheels have an optimal shelf life of 12 months uncut, and 1 lb wedges purchased from our web store have a shelf life of 150 days (*please note: for 1 lb wedges, this is from the date cut, not the date shipped).
- What does “cut and wrap” mean?
Because many of our cheeses are produced in large wheels, retailers cut and wrap the cheeses into smaller wedges. You’ll find our soft-ripened cheeses and aged cheeses sold this way, but if you’re searching for a whole wheel, ask your cheesemonger — they can usually order one for you!
