When you like stinky cheese, Grayson is one you need to try. A Virginia-made cheese that's modelled after great European cheeses like Taleggio and Pont l'Eveque.

Meadow Creek Dairy is a seasonal grass dairy making farmstead cheese from milk from purebred Jersey cows. High in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, these Meadow Creek’s cows are never confined and always roam the meadows, grazes on native grasses and legumes, giving the cheese a pure sense of the local terroir.

The award-winning Grayson is easy to spot on a cheese board; it has a bright yellow natural rind and golden paste. These colors are not artificially added, but comes from the richness of the milk and the washing of the rind.

Grayson is soft and sticky in texture, robust in flavor, and strong in aroma and a real gem and must-try on a sandwich or an eclectic cheese board. Serve with h-orange tacky rind. Grayson's flavors are robust and balanced, with savory notes of bacon, smoke, grass, and butter. It can be slightly sweet, with nutty and earthy undertones. Grayson is bold enough that it can stand alone, but it does pair well with bread and dried fruit, a full-bodied red or white wine.

We hand-cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in pieces of 1 pound and 8 ounces. You can also purchase the entire form of approximately 3.5 pounds.

Ingredients:cultured raw milk, salt, animal rennet.
