Goat cheese has been made for thousands of years, and was probably one of the earliest made dairy products.

In the most simple form, goat cheese is made by allowing raw milk to naturally curdle, and then draining and pressing the curds.

Goat cheese softens when exposed to heat, although it does not melt in the same way that many cow cheeses do.
