The Farm

Our farm is home to 250 dairy sheep, 2 Border Collies (who herd the sheep) and 5 Maremma- a beautiful white dog who protects the sheep from predators. Work on the farm includes: milking the sheep twice a day (5 a.m. and 5 p.m.), moving the sheep from pasture to pasture, haying, shearing sheep, cleaning to keep everything beautiful, and boxing up our cheeses and other goods and sending them out all over the country!

Vermont Shepherd has won two conservation awards in 2002 and 2006 for the quality of its farming work and improving the soils, pastures, and water resources.
