Spring Brook Farm, Ashbrook
On a trip to England, proprietors Karli and Jim Hagedorn were inspired by a program that taught city kids about farming. When they arrived home, they created the Farms for City Kids Foundation. This wonderful program brings in students from nearby cities up to the farm in southwestern Vermont. Along with farming vegetables, apple orchards, and a maple sugar house, cheese making was introduced as a way to financially support the foundation.
Ashbrook is a pungent Morbier style cheese, with a beautiful and distinct line of vegetable ash running through the center of it. This Vermont delicacy has a semi-soft and supple texture. This lactic and funky cheese pairs well with a slightly sour Berliner Wiesse or an acidic Pinot Noir!
