Goat cheese is a bizarre and repulsive product, an insult to any self-respecting plate, drab, tasteless muck that humiliates the taste bud and should revolt all but the starving. That said, it’s difficult not to sympathize with the two Czech farmers who have discovered that Brussels’ regulatory embrace is threatening to crush the life out of their goat cheese business. It’s difficult too not to be impressed by the way that these latter day Schweiks are trying to circumvent the bureaucrats.
They are marketing the cheese as an animal feedstuff in the following way:
“Goats’ cheese. Home-made to a family recipe handed down through six generations. Completely in violation of EU regulations, should be used as animal food. Tested on humans.”
Unfortunately, as EU Referendum’s Richard North points out, there’s a problem.
