Spring Brook Farms, "Ashbrook", Wash Rind, Raw Cow's, Reading, VT (~4oz)

Spring Brook Farms was established by Karli and Jim Hagedorn in Reading, VT to provide a hands-on learning experience for city-based children about farming and agriculture. The property functions as a full farm and cattle ranch, planted with vegetable gardens and orchards where children can interact and learn about where their food comes from. To enhance the commercial viability of their operations, the Hagedorns added cheesemaking to their roster some years ago. Children can watch the cheesemaking process from behind glass walls, where Jeremy Stephenson leads the cheesemaking. 
Ashbrook is the newest award-winning cheese coming out of this cheese house, with the first makes occurring mid-2014. This is their ode to the French Morbier. This cheese is a made from the fresh raw Jersey cow milk from partner dairies and exhibits a distinctive layer of vegetal ash running through the center of the paste. It is a semi-soft washed rind cheese that is aged for approximately three months. There are aromas of damp, dark cellar with a mild funkiness on the rind that gives way to a paste that is milky, lactic, and sweet.
