Bayley Hazen Blue is a Jasper Hill Farm original made from our high-quality, whole, raw milk. It's named for an old military road commissioned by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Though no battle ever took place, the road brought Greensboro its first settlers and continues to be used today.
Bayley has developed a loyal following because of its fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well-distributed blue veins. The usual peppery character of blue cheese is subdued, giving way to the grassy, nutty flavors in the milk. Named World's Best Unpasteurized Cheese at the 2014 World Cheese Awards!
Available by the half-pound wedge, or in increments of 1/8-, 1/4- or whole wheel. 1/8 wheel is approximately 12 ounces; 1/4-wheel is approximately 1.6 pounds; whole wheels are approximately 6-7 pounds.
