Forsyth Location Cheese Feature: - Green Dirt Farm - Missouri

Forsyth Location: 7435 Forsyth Road in Clayton (in the old Famous Barr Building with our own huge free parking lot)

Each of our locations features different cheese, come in and check them out.  We offer free tastes so you can decide what you like before you buy.   

Green Dirt Farm Dirt Lover - Missouri
Dirt lover is a bloomy rind cheese with a light coating of vegetable ash. Applying ash to the rind of cheeses is an old-world cheese making technique that helps to neutralize the pH of the rind, encouraging the desired rind formation. The dark line from the ash makes Dirt Lover a striking addition to a cheese plate.

Dirt lover tastes buttery, lemony, and mushroomy, and becomes earthy and beefy with age. It smells of wet dirt, like working in the garden.

This cheese pairs well with rosé, wheat beer, and dried apricots. Dirt Lover makes a wonderful salad with citrus quarters, walnuts, fennel, and a simple vinaigrette. 

Green Dirt Farm Woolly Rind - Missouri
Woolly Rind is a Bloomy Rind aged cheese, so named from the bloom of edible mold on the rind. It is a classic lactic style cheese that undergoes progressive ripening as it ages. This means that the cheese ripens from the rind towards the center.
Woolly Rind tastes buttery, tangy, and mushroomy. With age, the cheese gains earthy and beefy qualities. Its aroma frequently evokes thoughts of forest floor, or fresh soil. It is a good option to introduce people to aged sheep’s milk cheese, as it is relatively mild.
Woolly Rind pairs well with Lambic and Saison beers, unoaked Chardonnay, prosciutto,
honey or dark chocolate.
