Martone cheese



Martone cheese, LaClare Farms, Malone, Wisconsin

Made from pasteurized cow and goat milks.

Martone is a cow-goat milk blend cheese, covered in vegetable ash.  It’s a surface-ripened beauty made from a 50/50 blend of cow and goat’s milk, resulting in a mild, buttery flavor and citrus finish.  Sitting at about 1-1/2 inches tall and about 3-1/2 inches wide, Martone is made with pasteurized milk, vegetarian rennet and is ripened 10 days.

This product weighs approximately 7 ounces.



Martone cheese

Cheesemaker Katie Hedrich at LaClare Farms, ages Martone for about 10 days.  That means it will likely be between two and three weeks old when you buy it at a retail store and eat it, but you’d better hurry, because it’s only got a 30-day shelf life.  After that, this bloomy rind blossom is likely to ooze into chalky white goo.  (We would still eat it after 30 days, but using a spoon!)

Pairing suggestions: Pale Ale, Spiced Pecans, Door County dried cherries.
