Field Greens with Honey-Thyme Vinaigrette, Citrus Segments, Candied Walnuts, Raisins, Duck Confit and Chevre Crostini

In honor of October being named “American Cheese Month“, this post is focusing on my favorite local cheese producer here in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Bosky Acres is located in Union County, just around the corner from Waxhaw and Charlotte.  These guys raise dairy goats using healthy and sustainable practices and provide fresh, unripened goat cheese to local restaurants, farmers markets and whole food grocers like Earth Fare.  Their goat cheese is hormone and antibiotic free.  For more information on their method of production, you can follow this link.

Their goat cheese is rich and creamy, with a slight tart flavor.  It has become not only my favorite goat cheese, but it’s created a lot of fans in our kitchen and we even sold a container of it to a guest in the dining room after they experienced it on the menu.

This salad was built around the Bosky Acres goat cheese and features some great Fall flavors:  Orange segments, candied walnuts, raisins, and duck confit.  More about our duck confit can be found here.
