Vermont Shepherd Cheese is the country's most famous and oldest sheep milk cheese. It is created by the Ielpi Major family, who pasture and milk the sheep, and make and age the cheese on their 250 acre farm in Westminster West, Vermont. Come visit our Cheese Store, where you can taste and purchase our cheese. We encourage you to bring a picnic and bottle of wine and soak up the beautiful Vermont countryside. We also have a cheese stand on our farm, where you can taste our cheese, view our fields and see a few of our sheep!
Since 1980, we have made a fine "farmhouse" cheddar according to traditional methods, using only the raw milk from our purebred herd of Brown Swiss cows. The cheese is rGBH- and rBST-free and contains no artificial flavors, colorings, or preservatives. Visitors to Shelburne Farms are welcome to view our cheesemaking in process at the Farm Barn from mid-May to mid-October.

Neighborly Farms produces ten kinds of delicious organic cheeses, all made with wholesome milk from our 48, well-cared for Holstein cows. At our family farm we make cheese the old-fashioned way, by caring for the land and surroundings. It helps us produce the finest cheeses possible.
