A fine semi-hard cheese made from regional goat's milk that has a mild goat's flavor without being harsh. This cheese also stood out from over 4,400 submitted cheeses at the World Cheese Award 2022/2023 and was awarded silver.
Good to know: Each individual Kleine Zieze is bottled and cared for by hand. This means that each cheese is unique - both the rind and the taste can vary slightly.
The award winning Backensholz Hofkäserei is located in Schleswig Holstein, 50kms south of Flensburg.The name "Backensholz" comes from Danish and means "behind the forest". The small village is not only the origin of the organic products, but also a home. A family business for generations - today run by Martina and Ernst Metzger Petersen according to Bioland guidelines.
Using raw milk from their own herd, grazing on grass and feed grown exclusively on their farm, Backensholz has been producing exceptional cheeses since 1991. Focusing on regional cheese making traditions, Backensholz's cheeses are new interpretations of generation old recipes and techniques, each batch unique and carefully made by hand.
Since 2022 the farm has also been producing it's own renewable energy from solar panels and biogas from plant and animal waste, producing enough electricity to power their farm and over 2000 households.The Friescich Blaue is their take on a blue mold cheese.
