Westfield Farm
Classic Blue Logs

$7.99/EA
Each piece of snowy, lightly aged chevre is hidden beneath a brillant blue blanket of pencillum roquefortii mold. The result is an immediate tang, but no residual blue flavors: simply dense, cakey, tart goat cheese that coats the mouth with a pleasant lactic taste. The Roquefort mold is mixed into the milk along with salt, and left to develop in a cool cave for approximately three weeks. The cheese does not develop blue veining because the paste is not pierced in any way; the mold, of course, can only develop when exposed to oxygen, hence the distinctive exterior.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Lagers and Kolsch

    Lager, Dunkel, Schwarz, Pilsner, Kolsch Ale

    Lagers run the gamut from crisp, pale Pilsners to dark-malted Dunkels and Märzens. Flavors are typically approachable and mellow, a delicate balance of toasted bread, gentle sweetness, and mild hop bitterness for structure.
    Pair with: Almost any firm, mild cheese like Tomme de Savoie or Landaff Creamery Landaff.

  • Riesling

    This food-friendly wine ranges from super sweet to quite dry. Acidity, minerality, and aromas of tropical fruit are almost always present.

    Dry: Characterized by bracing acidity and stark minerality. Tropical fruit on the nose, stunningly balanced flavor overall.
    Pair with: This versatile wine works equally well with a fresh chevre (bringing out acidity) as it does a stinky Alsatian Munster (playing up the sweet/salty contrast).

    Sweet: The other end of the spectrum offers a cloyingly sweet, syrupy wine. Aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit dominate, along with floral, perfumed accents.
    Pair with: With something this strong it’s best to contrast the sweetness with something funky or salty: A pungent washed rind like Grayson or a punchy blue like Bleu du Bocage.

     

  • Chenin Blanc

    Crisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.

    Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly! 

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

Meet The Maker

Westfield Farm has been handcrafting award-winning farmstead cheeses in Hubbardston, Massachusetts, since 1971. Located on 20 acres in Central Massachusetts, the farm turns out a little over 1500 pounds of cheese per week. Their careful attention to their animals and craftsmanship are what keep us coming back for more. Westfield’s flagship goat cheese, Capri, is one of our favorite recommendations on the counter when customers ask for fresh, zesty goat cheese.
