Goat Rodeo Farm & Dairy | Allison Park, Pa.
Like a trick by Willy Wonka, this multi-medalist possesses the magical ability to conjure an entire meal within a single bite. The second you sink your teeth into a supple slice of Bamboozle, your palate is pulled through a familiar succession of flavors: cultured butter, salty ham, freshly-baked bread— the perfect Jambon-Beurre. Milk from Goat Rodeo’s own herd of Alpine and Nubian goats is blended with cow’s milk from a neighboring family farm for an especially rich mouthfeel, balanced out by just the right amount of washed-rind funk. Bathed with local beer from Cinderlands Beer Company, this cheese is teeming with terroir. It tied for ACS Second Best of Show with Beecher’s Flagsheep.
