FrontRunners: Cheeze Wiz

<< Back to Robb Report, January 2007

    Nancy Patton’s Haute Goat Creamery (www.hautegoatcreamery.com) in Lubbock, Texas, is a small operation: just herself, her husband, and 18 goats. With milk from her Alpine, Nubian, Saanen, and La Mancha goats, Patton makes extraordinary cheeses that can be purchased in a half-dozen stores in Texas or ordered from the company’s web site. Her selections include Tequila Abby, a chevrotin-type cheese that is washed twice weekly for 14 weeks with tequila and chipotle ($32 per pound), and Lockki’s Truffles, cheese-and-chocolate balls rolled in espresso, cocoa, cinnamon, and chipotle ($2 each).
