Meadow Creek Dairy is a small, seasonal family dairy in the rural mountains of South Western Virginia. Their washed rind, Grayson, is perhaps America’s greatest washed rind, and has accordingly won countless awards. It’s similar to the firmer washed rinds of Northern France. Made from June through March, earlier wheels have a pink rind with a buttery yellow interior, and a more delicate flavor. As the season progresses, the cows’ diet changes depending on what flora is available. On wheels from later in the season, the rind is a thick day-glo orange, and the paste is a bright plastine yellow; it almost looks fake it is so perfect and beautiful. The texture melts into a thick sauce on your tongue, and the flavor is a burst of butter and eggs with a hint of the aroma on the exhale.
