The Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company began as a community effort to save a local farm and it’s surrounding rural landscape in South Woodstock, Vermont. In very short order, the dairy farm has been transformed into an award-winning cheese company that is creating an entirely new generation of unique farmstead and artisan cheeses.
Vermont Farmstead's multi-breed herd, sustainable dairy farming practices, and creative cheese makers have put a delicious Vermont twist on traditional world cheese recipes. While eagerly embracing anticipated growth, the company remains firmly dedicated to its founding principles to produce a variety of unique and excellent cheeses, gently care for its herd of cows and farm land, foster Vermont’s farming communities, and elevate the state's dairy industry.
Our Featured Cheese from VT Farmstead Cheese Co.
Start with a classic Vermont Cheddar cheese and submerge the curds in Munich Dark and IPA from the local (Vermont) artisan Harpoon® brewery, so the full ale flavor is soaked up by the curds. The result is an AleHouse Cheddar Cheese with an ale aroma and a flavor that balances nuts, hops and sweet notes.
The Munich Dark gives the cheese a light marble look and the IPA adds a more complex hop flavor. Many artisan beer lovers like to munch on the gourmet cheddar that won several awards including a gold medal at the 2011 LA International Dairy Competition and a 3rd-place award at the 2013 American Cheese Society's Competition.
