Harbison Cheese portrait by Mike Geno

Harbison is a wonderful and addictive "gooey" cheese by Jasper Hill farms in Vermont. It's sides are wrapped in a strip of bark but the quilt-like rind was the real challenge here.

"Harbison is a bark-wrapped bloomy-rind cheese with woodsy, sweet, herbal, and bright flavors. We named our newest cheese after Anne Harbison, seen by many to be the grandmother of Greensboro, VT. She's active in the community, runs a bed and breakfast, and volunteers at the public library, and has known the Kehler brothers since they were children. The bark, cut from Jasper Hill Farm's woodlands holds the delicate cheese together, provides flavor to the creamy paste, and allows for an ideal presentation as the centerpiece of a cheese plate."
