A Nosey Champion
Upper Canada Cheese Company has introduced Nosey Goat Cheese milk from a rare herd of Lamancha Goats pasteurized in Keene, Ontario. This fresh, pure milk is then transformed into Camelot and Nanny Noir. Camelot is aged two months in cellars, while Nanny Noir is rolled in ash, develops a bloomy rind, and can be enjoyed within weeks. On November 3rd, judges at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair named Camelot the Reserve Champion, Goat Cheese. In the goat camembert class, Nanny Noir was awarded 2nd place.
