I'm new to the forum (planning first make, probably a CaerPhilly).
Anyway, when I was a kid, we bought what was called 'Goat Cheese' from a small goat dairy/cheesemaker.
It was made in good size rounds, maybe 6-8" tall and 15" diameter (Size is a guess from several decade old memories).
The cheese was very hard, but sliceable. The outside had salt on it and maybe 1/4" -1/2" in was very salty.
The rest of the cheese had a slight salty taste.
If you bent a slice, it would break when you bent it 45 degrees or so.
I remember walking to get cheese and would just ask for a wedge and carry it back to my grandma's house.
Anyway, i know it's not much to go on, but thought I'd throw out the question. This was in Southern Colorado in the 70's
