Unpasteurized Goat Cheese Please
It appears more goat dairies are making great cheese from unpasteurized milk and legally circumventing state laws by marketing it as pet food.
Michelle at The Accidental Environmentalist says she’s been feasting on locally made yogurts and cheeses circulating in the Gainsville, Fla., area. The yogurts and cheese are clearly labeled “For Pet Consumption Only — Not for Human Consumption.”
One of the producers is Glades Ridge Goat Dairy, of Lake Butler, Fla., which advertises “high quality, rich unpasteurized dairy products” from pasture-raised goats whose milk is free of hormones and antibiotics. Glades Dairy products also carry labels that scream NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION – PET CONSUMPTION ONLY.
“But their goat cheese is so tasty,” Michelle said. “I love to mix it up with fresh basil, oregano, sun-dried tomatoes, and drizzled with a ton of really high-quality olive oil.”
Editors Note: To that we say “Woof woof” and “Meow,” which roughly translated means “If it’s good enough for the pets, it’s good enough for humans.”
