It's affectionately known in creamery circles as "missionary cheese."
Pholia Farm lets smooth richness and mild flavor do the talking for its raw-milk recipes. Despite a gourmet price tag, Pholia's handmade products are known to "convert" many people who believe they don't like goat cheese, says farm co-owner and cheesemaker Gianaclis Caldwell.
"We're selling more and more ... at the farmers market," she says.
Pholia cheeses have been available only for the past year Tuesdays at Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Markets in Ashland and for just a few months at the Saturday Grants Pass Growers Market. Rogue Creamery in Central Point has been Pholia's primary retailer for the past five years.
