Named after the county Grayson, the cheese is produced by Meadow Creek Dairy in the small town of Galax, Virginia. Grayson is an artisanal cheese made using raw milk from their own herd of Jersey cows. It is aged for at least sixty days until the wheels form a reddish-orange rind and golden paste.The texture is fudgy and supple while the paste is rich and beefy with hints of grass and nuts. Grayson goes well with bread or dried fruits. As it melts beautifully, it could be used with a variety of dishes. The cheese pairs well with a full bodied white, medium red, beer.
