Full Shipping Details
Laychee is the locals’ term for milk. It is a fresh mixed-milk cheese (goat’s and sheep’s milk) that is transformed into cheese and read for sale in just a few days. It is soft, spreadable, fluffy and gently tangy, like a particularly delicious cream cheese. Pennyroyal Farm cheeses are made daily in the creamery by head cheesemaker and herd manager Erika McKenzie-Chapter. Sheep have been in residence at the family’s Boonville farm for over a quarter of a century, but it wasn’t until 2006 that Erika decided to grow wine grapes and make cheese.

Each cheese is made in a small batch and named from Boontling, a unique language that originated in Boonville and the surrounding hills at the end of the 19th century. The cheeses are a unique mix of goat and sheep milks; a blend that changes with the seasons from nearly 20% sheep milk at the start of the year to 100% goat milk in the fall and winter, when the sheep stop milking. Each cheese type is unique as it highlights the daily and seasonal variation of the milk. Laychee is a testament to the dynamic changes of the seasons and milk. Serve the Laychee with a crisp glass of dry Rose or Gewürztraminer and alongside a platter of fresh crudites, marcona almonds and crostini.
