Named for founder Judy Schad's red-haired granddaughter Piper, Piper's Pyramide is a beautiful pyramid shape goat cheese that is sprinkled with a touch of paprika. Piper Pyramide has a heavenly texture, with a pillowy softness that is light and fluffy when young and turns fudgy as it ripens. This hand-ladled cheese tastes of sweet cream, a hint of citrus, and an underlying earthiness. Judy Schad is among a small group of cheesemakers in the United States who were at the forefront of the farmstead cheese revolution. She has been instrumental in growing the American artisan cheese movement.
Piper's Pyramide is a winner of many American Cheese Society awards.
