Fresh chèvre relies on youth for its vibrant character. Lively Run’s small-batch version uses goat’s milk from local Finger Lakes farms in Upstate New York, capturing a slight tang and grassy notes. This family-run creamery is an American goat cheese pioneer, and the craft is obvious in each creamy yet delicate bite. The uses for high-quality chèvre are endless. Blend into dips, top soups and salads, add to a cheesecake, or serve simply with Raincoast Fig & Olive Crisps and Blenheim Apricots.

"This cheese is a shining example of everything artisanal goat cheese can be. Summer is when it truly reaches MVP status in my kitchen. My all-time favorite use is crumbled on a pizza with figs, arugula, prosciutto, and hot honey."

Goat Milk, Salt, Rennet
  • Lively Run’s goats are fed a diet of local forage and feed, which lends this cheese its grassy notes.
  • Fresh chèvre is unaged and rindless, retaining the bright, tangy flavor of pure goat’s milk.
  • Goat’s milk has around the same fat content as cow’s milk, but because of a difference in fat structure, goat cheese often feels lighter on the palate.
  • “Chèvre” is French for “goat,” but is also commonly understood to be a blanket term for goat cheese.
  • Lively Run Chèvre is great for everyday snacking or an elevated cheese board; incorporating into savory dishes or sweet desserts (try it as a swap for cream cheese).
  • Located in the Finger Lakes region in upstate New York, Lively Run Dairy is one of the longest operating goat dairies in the United States. 
  • When it started production in 1982, Lively Run was a pioneer in American-made goat cheese.
  • The Messner family has run the farm and dairy since 1995—parents Steve and Susanne eventually welcomed their sons Pete and Dave into the business.
  • Since Pete took over as head cheesemaker in 2013, he has expanded Lively Run’s products to include more aged goat cheeses and cow’s milk cheeses.
  • Their goat herd is made up of French Alpines and Swiss Saanens, who are fed a diet of local forage and feed to capture the terroir of the Finger Lakes region in their goats’ milk and, eventually, Lively Run’s cheeses.

While harder cheeses can stay fresh for up to two to three weeks when wrapped tightly and unopened, fresh style cheeses are best consumed within a few days. The best thing to do is to keep the cheese in one of your refrigerator drawers or the vegetable bin wrapped in the cheesepaper it came in; this will help to keep your cheese from drying out. All cheeses and meats are perishables—by definition they degrade over time—so we encourage our customers to enjoy the cheese while it's in peak condition!
