Grey Barn Farm Organic Bluebird
‘Pure, pure, pure,’ wrote poet John Borroughs of the bluebird’s call. And that’s an apt description of this cheese. Grey Barn thought so as well, and named its blue cheese after the poem. Made on the a Martha's Vineyard farm with a herd of 37 cows, Bluebird has the essence of its land: it’s creamy and fudgy, with a rustic, barny flavor and a touch of sea breeze. Where many blues foreground their sharpness, this one has a mellower vibe. Another difference: it’s a blue cheese with a natural rind. Oh, and it's in block shape, which makes sense for something that’s in such rare form.
