Full Shipping Details
Grey Barn's first cheese, and still their favorite. A so-called "critical darling," the pungent inner paste of Prufrock has a beautiful, thick, soft, and yielding texture. It’s a delicate washed-rind cheese whose tradition and technique hails from Normandy in northern France. But they've twisted that tradition and technique for a nutty flavor with hints of tropical fruit and sour cream. When ripe, the cheese has a salty and savory flavor that perfectly complements its sweeter overtones.,P> Over the first several years Grey Barn had been developing cheese and waiting for their milk to take them to where it wanted to go. To talk about their cheese we must first talk about their milk. The farm produces the most lovely raw organic cow’s milk you have ever tasted and Grey barn believes that their herd of twenty-five grass-fed cows are the reason. Eating a grass-only diet, the herd’s milk becomes infused with the flavors of the pasture through the different seasons. They found that the mild and damp climate of Martha’s Vineyard, where the air is perpetually permeated with a salty tang, was the perfect environment for a washed-rind cheese. It was from this discovery that they began to research other washed rind cheeses and found that their Prufrock is much the same as cheeses from the coasts of Ireland and France.

Serving Suggestion: Prufrock is luscious served with a sliced warm baguette and bit of chunky apricot jam on top - even a spicy mango chutney works nicely. In the summer months when you have burgers on the grill serve it as the cheese on your cheeseburger along with a warm bun, onion relish and a bit of sweet ketchup. Prufrock is also terrific as a grilled cheese.

Pairing Suggestion: A wonderful heady Belgian Trappist Ale. The final result is a supple and stinky cheese known as Prufrock. The rustic orange rind that has developed in the cave encases a delectable soft paste that is golden in color. This hand made certified organic cheese is unique not only because it is lovingly made on Martha’s Vineyard but also because the changes in the pastures seasonally gives subtle changes in our milk. Those subtle flavor changes are transferred into our cheese.
