Coach Farm Rawstruck: A Perfect Synergy

The Daily Meal‘s cheese review column, Hooked on Cheese, recently published a review of Coach Farm’s Rawstruck, and we couldn’t help feel a little proud. Why’s that, you ask? Well, you might recall that with your help, we assisted Coach Farm in coming up with its name! Earthy, minerally, and citrusy, it’s no wonder The Daily Meal was “hooked” on Rawstruck.

Rawstruck™ is made only one day a month, so it has a very limited production but tons of attention from the dairy. It is hand-ladled, which is very rare in modern cheese making since it necessitates a lot of extra work, and then, because it is made from raw milk, it has to age for a minimum of 60 days. It has a white bloomy rind, and each form is about four pounds in weight. It has hints of earthiness, minerality and a slight citrus bite. And due to the pungent raw milk used, it has a very pleasant linger on the palate.
