Our Orange County Cheese Shop
We at Vin Goat, an Orange County cheese shop, carry cheese hand-selected from specialty importers and producers - the artisans themselves. It is our mission to offer the largest selection of farmstead and artisan cheese in Southern California.
Our goal is to carry 150-200 varieties of farmstead and artisan cheese at any given time, maintaining a unique and diverse selection available nowhere else. We sell only cheese that is ready to eat. All cheese is properly stored and cared for, and will be cut to order for you at peak ripeness.
What Is Artisan Cheese?
Artisan cheese is made by hand in small batches. The cheesemakers are skilled craftsmen who use traditional techniques passed down for generations - sometimes centuries. While mass-produced cheese may be indistinct or bland, artisan cheese is created, aged and ripened to fully develop its one-of-a-kind flavors.
What Is Farmstead Cheese?
A farmstead cheese is a type of artisan cheese that is literally “from the farm.” The cheese is made using only milk from the producer’s own herds of goats, sheep, and cows.
We carry a selection of delicious artisan bread - loaves, rolls and baguettes baked fresh for us daily by a local artisan baker.
In addition to carrying the best artisan cheese from around the world, we at Vin Goat, an Orange County Cheese Shop, offer the perfect accompaniments, all selected to be paired with the cheeses. Our cupboard essentials are all small volume, hand crafted products:
