Bayley Hazen Blue Jasper Hill Farm 200g

About This Cheese

The complexity of Bayley means it’s ideal for blue lovers, but the balanced sweetness and mild spice make it approachable to a more timid audience. Try pairing with a fruity red dessert wine, toasty imperial stout, or a hunk of dark chocolate. Slicing makes for amazing burgers or salads, especially with caramelized onion.

Story

Bayley Hazen Blue was one of the first cheeses made as the Jasper Hill Creamery got up and running in 2003. The recipe is based on a British natural rind blue. The name, however, comes from a Northeast Kingdom landmark – the Bayley Hazen Military Road, commissioned by George Washington as a Revolutionary War supply route. This signature blue cheese has developed a loyal following because of its fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well distributed blue veins. The usual peppery character of blue cheese is subdued, elevating the grassy, nutty flavors of the milk.

Producer

Jasper Hill Farm is the pinnacle of American artisan cheese and we are
delighted to have their cheeses at Sheridans Cheesemongers.
Located in the idyllic Vermont country side, Jasper Hill Farm is committed to
producing the highest quality cheeses with great respect for their herd and
the north east landscape. As pioneers in the American artisan cheese
industry, they strive to set new standards for quality and innovation while
celebrating the region's distinctive terroir.
From the outset, brothers Andy and Mateo knew their farm had to stand out,
and envisioned a model of small-scale dairy farming turning raw milk into
premium farmhouse cheese. They set to work, fixed up the farm, built a
creamery and caves for aging. The start was challenging but over the years,
and through partnerships with Cabot Creamery, they have become
Americas finest cheese producers.
The partnership with Cabot Creamery helped Jasper Hill Farm grow their
farm and innovate. Their farm works as an interconnected nutrient recycling
system between the soil, the crops, the animals. They developed an on-site
microbiology lab to understand their cheeses' terroir and fully adapt their
conventional farm into raw milk cheese production. Additionally, they
produce all their own feed on-site, ensuing high-quality ingredients despite
the region's harsh conditions. Together, these initiatives help Jasper Hill Farm
sustainably produce wonderful farmhouse cheese in the American countryside.
