dairy products including local farmstead products
From Meadow Creek Dairy,
GRAYSON ~ Styled after the Italian Taleggio but with Meadow Creek's
rich Jersey milk and a longer aging time. Surface ripened with a thin reddish-orange washed rind, Grayson is a soft cheese,
finely textured and almost liquid when fully ripe and served at room temperature. Very rich and beefy with a pungent aroma
and a nutty, sweet overtone.
~ A lightly cooked, pressed-curd cheese, aged for at least sixty days in Meadow Creek's cellars, Appalachian is similar to
a simple French Tomme. The final product is a densely textured cheese with a supple straw-colored paste. The taste is gentle
and buttery with earthy undertones and citrus notes; the rindwhite with glimpses of gray.
MOUNTAINEER ~ has a smooth supple texture and a natural brushed rind. Mountaineer is aged in
Meadow Creek's cellars a minimum of six months, giving it a concentrated flavor, toasted and nutty with a hint of butterscotch.

GLEN CHEVRE, Farmstead Fresh Goat Cheese hand-dipped fresh chevre is soft (similar to cream cheese) but has a distinctive
tangy flavor. Although it tastes great as is, many enjoy adding herbs and other flavorings to this cheese. It is delicious
on bread or toast with honey drizzled over.
MONOCACY SILVER Farmstead Fresh
Goat Cheese, This is a soft-ripened half-pound cylindrical shaped cheese with a white mold exterior. It is more tangy
and flavorful than most Brie but ripens to a similar creamy internal consistency. As with Brie, many prefer to eat the rind
with the cheese. This great "go to" cheese works well anytime.
ASH Farmstead Fresh Goat Cheese, This soft-ripened two-layer cheese is very similar to the previous cheese, but has
an edible ash coating and ash line through the center. Using the same culture as in the Silver, this more complex cheese tastes
slightly different due to the alkalinity of the vegetable ash. Although we would not pair this with Champagne or dark chocolate
- it ranks right up there. Decadent!
MONOCACY CHIPOTLE Farmstead Fresh Goat
Cheese, This cheese has the same format as the Silver and Ash. It comes on smoky and follows through with a wonderfully
spicy finish. It is perfect for a savory breakfast strata or tart.
Farmstead Fresh Goat Cheese, The curd for the Gold is drawn at higher pH than the Silver or Ash. Not as heavy as Brie,
this delicate, mild flavored cheese is smooth and silky. Sprinkle generously with dry crushed fennel and enjoy with your favorite
