Barnyardy

Barnyardy

The ultimate expression of terroir, this is a descriptor that gets right down to the farm. It connotes a degree of earthiness and/or gaminess in the cheese, often with a primal aroma of wood, wool, and warm milk. A barnyardy quality is most typically associated with cheese made from sheep’s and goat’s milk, which have different protein and fat structures than cow’s milk.
