Vermont is known for its rich American history; from the first European setters, to the Revolutionary War battles, dedicated citizens in the Civil War, and of course…farmhouse cheesemaking! Named after two Revolutionary War heroes, Colonel Jacob Bayley and General Moses Hazen; this straight forward road was established between the years 1776-1779 in attempts to capture Canada. Like this war remnant, Bayley Hazen Blue is direct, rugged, and yet encompassed by a floral sweetness. Made in a similar style of the English Stilton (oh how ironic) this cheese is easy to love, aged for three months its strong domineering blue characteristics are slightly subdued by the sweet buttermilk and anise notes. Jasper Hill Farms, who first crafted Bayley Hazen in 2003, are just as dedicated as their ancestors to staying true to the land they love; thus creating a lovely american blue cheese we are proud of.
A late night chocolate treat is a lovely partner for this warm blue.
