This gorgeous goat cheese is made in New York State from fresh milk from Lively Run Dairy’s herd of French Alpines and Swiss Saanens. Finger Lakes Gold is aged for at least four months to produce a cheese that is mellow and nutty in flavor and firm in texture, with a beautiful gold- yellow natural rind. If you love Goat Gouda, this domestic version may become your new favorite! Finger Lakes Gold works nicely with egg-based dishes and melts very well. It is also a wonderfully unique addition to any cheese board, pairing well with cured meats as well as jams or fruit. Enjoy with a full bodied rich Napa Cabernet Sauvignon or a fruity Grand Cru from Burgundy (Pinot Noir), or simply serve with wines from the Finger Lake region.

Lively Run Dairy is a family-owned creamery located in the Finger Lakes Region of New York and one of the longest operating commercial goat dairies in the country, beginning production in 1982. They are pioneers of goat cheese in the United States domestic market. Their small batch, hand made artisanal cheeses were originally made by Suzanne Messmer, the mantle has since passed onto her son Pete who carries on his mother’s cheese recipes and added some of his own innovative recipes to their line of cheeses. Made with vegetarian rennet.

What’s the best way to store my cheese?
The best way to keep cheese fresh is to store it in the vegetable crisper in your fridge. Before doing so, wrap in parchment or wax paper, then wrap loosely in plastic wrap. You can also buy our exclusive cheese storage bags, specially created to keep your cheese fresher, longer.

Unless used for cooking, we don’t recommend storing cheese in the freezer as this will alter its texture.

What is the best temperature to serve my cheese?
Remove cheese from the fridge an hour before serving, as cheese is best experienced at room temperature to enjoy the full spectrum of flavors.

How long will my cheese stay fresh in the refrigerator?
The length of time cheeses last in the fridge after opening depends largely on the type of cheese. Soft varieties tend to spoil more quickly than hard varieties. Please refer to the table below for a convenient reference:

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
