Harbison is made from the milk of Jasper Hill's own herd of Ayrshire cows. It is a spruce- bark wrapped bloomy-rind cheese with a spoonable, rich creamy and addictive paste. Its flavors are woodsy, vegetal, and mustardy and finish with a hint of sweet cream. To serve, go in from the top by cutting part of the top rind off and spooning out the paste.
Please note: It is normal for the spruce bark to be mottled with white, blue and green molds. You can leave as is or wipe the bark off with a soft cloth.
