Visit our Cheese Store, taste and purchase our cheese, bring a picnic and bottle of wine and soak up the beautiful Vermont countryside. The farmstore is open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm. We carry yarn, soap, lamb meat, maple syrup, Vermont Shepherd cheese, Invierno cheese, Ricotta Lana Salata cheese and accompaniments for the various cheeses.
Come and taste our cheese, view our fields and see a few of our sheep! Oursmall, rustic cheese stand has samples to taste and wedges of cheese to buy (1/2 lb - 2 lb pieces). If you would like to purchase a larger piece of cheese while you're in our area, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org, let us know the quantity you are looking for and we will have your cheese ready for you when you arrive. Because we are busy farming and making cheese, visitors are discouraged from visiting our farm and facilities. The Cheese Stand is a great way to get a "taste" forwhat our farm and cheese is all about! We appreciate your understanding!
Our small rustic farm stand, located near beautiful sheep pastures, offers a great way to pick up a wedge or two of our cheese year round. Check here for occasional farm and cheese cave open houses.
