Cheese of the Moment:

Mini Harbison

Selection by milk: Cow

Milk Treatment: Pasteurized

Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic, bloomy rind, made by Jasper Hill Farm.


Young cheeses are wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, the tree's inner bark layer, harvested from the farm's woodlands.


Harbison is woodsy and sweet, balanced with lemon, mustard, and vegetal flavors. There is a natural blue green flora present on the spruce cambium. 


The classic Harbison won ‘Best in Show’ at the American Cheese Society Conference in 2018 and 'Best American Cheese' at the World Cheese Awards in 2015 and again in 2016.

You have to be a romantic to invest yourself, your money and your time in cheese.
