Located in the small town of Mt. Sterling, Wisconsin, in an area that is increasingly becoming known for its large numbers of dairy goats, Mt. Sterling Cheese Cooperative is one of the largest goat milk co-ops in the United States.
Incorporated in 1976, milk for production comes from its Member dairy goat farms across Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. Their goat's milk products, which primarily consist of cheese and butter, are marketed under the the name of Mt. Sterling Cheese Coop, which was acquired in 1983.
Mt. Sterling Goat Raw Cheddar is a mild cheese with hints of grass, hay and mushrooms.
The body and paste of the cheese is smooth, supple and dense, making this cheese very accessible and a good "starter" goat's milk cheese.
