Product Description

Barren County Bleu is named for the county where we farm and make cheese, and this blue carries the essence of our farm very effectively. Its cheddar base makes for a resilient and optimal cave-aging cheese, which we do for a minimum of 5 months. The rind is larded, an old world technique to keep the rind from cracking and keep a good moisture balance while the cheese ages. The result is an incredibly flavorful but accessible bleu, with fruity cheddar notes as well as mushroom and forest floor. A slightly crystalline texture adds to the experience, finishing with a fudge-like depth.

Wine Pairing: Reds with a good amount of minerality
Beer Pairing: Dry-hopped IPA’s
Food Pairing: Dark Chocolate (Ice cream included), berries
