Located in Pescadero, California, Harley Farms is a restored dairy farm that dates back to 1910. Owned and run by Dee Harley, a native of Britain, this is the only remaining dairy in San Mateo County, a once thriving dairy region. Having originally started with six pet goats, Harley Farms is now home to over 200 American Alpine goats. The milk is transformed into farmstead cheeses daily.

This fresh goats’ milk ricotta is made by first frothing whole milk in a double boiler. The milk is then curdled with the aid of white wine vinegar. Curd is salted and then scooped into one-pound baskets and allowed to drain overnight before being packed and sold.

Tasting Notes

The bright white cheese has a dense and slightly 'meaty' texture with tastes of fresh grass and a subtle salt finish.

Pairings

Harley Farms uses this Ricotta to produce delicious ravioli. It also can be drizzled with honey and eaten for breakfast or dessert.
