The Jacquin family has been producing goat cheeses for 50 years and 3 generations. Their aim has always been to be among the best in their field and what makes their products magical and successful is their specificity: a combination of quality, innovation, modernisation, tradition and obviously, know-how.

The farm is based in La Vernelle, in Centre-Val de Loire (the cradle of French goat-cheese making), located south of the Loire River, where the climate is mild. The floral and climatic unity of this region gives milk a special taste that contributes to the specific aromas of Sainte-Maure.

Sainte-Maure de Touraine is a French cheese produced in the province of Touraine and is named after the small town of Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine.

Sainte-Maure de Touraine is an unpasteurized cheese made from full fat goat's milk. It has the form of a small log, around 16–17 cm in length, and weighs 250 g. It is white and soft under a greyish moldy rind and is rolled in wood ash. It has a straw through its centre, marked by the AOC seal and a number indicating the producer. The straw is used, in the making, to keep the roll together. The finished cheese has 45% milk fat.
