Goat cheese is one of those ingredients that magically makes almost any dish better. Pasta? Add goat cheese. Pizza? Add goat cheese. Salad? Add goat cheese. Burgers? ADD GOAT CHEESE!
Luckily, being in Wisconsin, we have several local sources of goat cheese. LaClare Farms (Malone, WI) has won numerous awards for their goat cheese at both the national and international level. Most people recognize the name Montchevre, which was started in Preston, WI. Check out some of the other leading producers of goat cheese in Wisconsin:
Mt. Sterling Co-Op Creamery (Mt. Sterling, WI)
Nordic Creamery (Westby, WI)
Pasture Pride (Cashton, WI)
Clock Shadow Creamery (Milwaukee, WI)
