from The Grey Barn and Farm, Chilmark, MA
Eidolon is a bright, grassy cheese that smells of freshly tilled earth and has a creamy layer topping its dense cake like center. This young, bloomy rind cheese is made in a classic French style with delicate mold growth on the surface and a center that is rich and milky.
In naming our cheese, we were inspired by the Walt Whitman poem, Eidolons. In this poem an eidolon is the perfect form of an idea, a Platonic notion of reality in philosophy, an ideal.
