If You Needed Another Excuse to Eat More Cheese, Here It Is



Courtesy of The Farm at Doe Run

Turophiles, rejoice: We’ve got a great excuse for you to try a new cheese at appetizer hour.

The Farm at Doe Run—a small Chester County farm that creates award-winning cheeses—has recently released Mayfly Cheese, a Camembert-style cheese with a bloomy rind. And the farm will be donating 10 percent of Mayfly cheese proceeds to the Stroud Water Research Center, a nonprofit in Avondale, Pa., dedicated to advancing knowledge and stewardship of fresh water through scientific research, environmental education and watershed restoration worldwide.

The Mayfly Cheese is named after the delicate-winged creatures that fly above healthy streams and rivers: When the mayflies disappear, it’s a sign that clean water has likely disappeared, too.

The cheese is also available for purchase at Country Butcher in Kennett Square, Pa.
