Have you even done fresh goat cheese at home?

It is a lot easier than you might think 🙂

It is not easy to find fresh cheese in The Netherlands, and specially fresh goat cheese.

Where can I buy fresh goat milk in The Netherlands?

That was for sure a challenge. You can find goat milk in most supermarkets but is not 100% fresh.

If you are looking for real fresh goat milk in The Netherlands with no treatment, you can find it here.

How can I eat fresh cheese?

On a toast with honey and walnuts is amazing, but it is also amazing to use it as pie fillings, like spinach and cheese pies.

What to do with the whey?

After making cheese or butter at home, I realised that you also get lots of milk whey.

I always go for these 2 options: Irish soda bread or whey pizza dough.

Fresh Goat Cheese

Recipe by Enara ParraDifficulty: Easy
Prep time






  • 1,5 liters fresh goat milk

  • 55 ml lemon juice

  • Salt


  • In a large pot heat the goat milk until it reaches 90ºC.
  • Remove from heat and add the lemon juice. Stir and set aside for 45 minutes. Until cuds form and it cools down a bit.
  • Line a colander with cheesecloth and pour the milk. Add salt and mix.
  • Close the cheesecloth and allow the whey to drain.
  • I like a creamy cheese so I do not drain the liquid too much, for me with 30 minutes is enough. You can leave it more time if you like it dry.
  • Place the cheese ball in a mold. I use a plating ring to make a small cheese.
  • Keep in the refrigerator in a closed container.


  • You can make a toast with some fresh goat cheese, honey and walnuts. Or spread it over some grilled red peppers.
