Nosey Goat Camelot is an award winning goat milk cheese from Ontario's Niagara Peninsula.
Nosey Goat Camelot is a semi-firm cheese, with a washed rind made from pasteurised goat milk. It has a golden colour washed rind and a firm wheat colour paste with eyes dotted throughout. It has a strong earthy aroma as a result of being aged for two months in a cellar. The paste's texture becomes quite creamy on the palate with a delicious lingering goat milk flavour.
Nosey Goat Camelot is produced by Upper Canada Cheese Company a small artisanal creamery located in Jordan Station in the heart of the Niagara wine region of Southern Ontario. Lauren Petryna is the skilled cheesemaker behind Upper Canada Cheese Company celebrity cheeses including Niagara Gold, Guernsy Girl, Comfort Cream, Nosey Goat Camelot and Nanny Noire.
Upper Canada’s Nosey Goat cheeses are made with the milk from a rare herd of Lamancha Goats pastured at Gord and Melanie Wood’s Idllywood Farm in Keene, Ontario in Peterborough County. Lamancha goats are perhaps the most distinctive goat breed. They are easily recognizable by their very short ears. They are also known for their high milk production, and the high butterfat content in their milk.
