ZIEGENKÖNIG

This unique semi-hard Swiss goats cheese is produced with milk from the renowned Toggenburg goats that still roam free in the unspoilt Alpine landscape of the Toggenburg valley where they spend their summer. It is mild in taste with a surprising texture and works well paired with dried fruit and compote. 

Ziegenkönig is German for king of the goats.
