PINE PLAINS, N.Y., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coach Farm, farmstead goat dairy and creamery, introduces Rawstruck™, raw milk aged goat cheese. After 28 years of pasteurized cheese making, this is the first raw milk goat cheese from award-winning goat cheese maker Coach Farm.
Made just one day each month, Rawstruck™ is created from the milk of Coach Farm's own herd of dairy goats. The curd is hand ladled, hand shaped, and set to age. In compliance with current federal regulations of the sale and consumption of raw milk cheeses, Rawstruck™ is aged for 60 days before its release.
To help name this new cheese, Coach Farm teamed up with the industry respected publication Culture: the Word on Cheese magazine to create a public naming contest through the combined social media channels. To engage the public and encourage name submissions, videos of the process were posted online and bloggers were requested to submit product reviews and pairing ideas. Rawstruck™ has been described as having "a surprising depth of flavor that pleasantly lingers"; "a cheese with a crumbly texture at first that literally melts in your mouth"; and the "angel food of goat's milk cheese" by bloggers and industry gurus.
"The response to the program was overwhelming," says Steven Margarites, President of Coach Farm. "But the name that best captured the adjectives that the bloggers used to describe the cheese was Rawstruck™".
Rawstruck™ is available immediately for distribution in 4lb wheels with an SRP of $24.99lb.
