Vermont Shepherd has won numerous awards for best US farmhouse cheese, and The Robb Report called it "possibly the best sheep milk cheese in America." Vermont Shepherd is a smooth and creamy, semi-hard cheese with a sweet, rich and earthy flavor. The rustic wheel has a rough, golden brown rind. We make our cheeses only during pasture season when the sheep graze on clover, grasses and wild herbs. Each wheel comes packed in hay with a description of the sheeps' pasture and the weather on the day the cheese was made.
If you pay online with a credit card, we'll choose a 6 lb. wheel. If you choose to be billed, we will bill you for the exact weights of the cheese we select (at $15.50/lb.)
