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 artisanal 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. The Vermont Farmstead Cheese company has also opened a cut and wrap and shipping facility in nearby Windsor, VT to help with the ongoing company growth.

Vermont Farmstead Cheddar

Our rolling vibrant pastures and crisp mountain air are embodied in our terroir and find delicious expression through our Farmstead Cheddar. We use only the freshest raw whole milk directly from our own herd for a lush bite of cheddar with a subtle sweet note and lingering hints of butter and fruit. The curd is milled using our peg mill which produces a unique, more open, friable texture. Available in 12lb truckle moulds.

Flavored WindsorDale

We age our WindsorDale a minimum of 6 months before any flavors are added which results in a better balance between the flavor and the cheese versus most flavored cheeses found in the marketplace today. Choose from Cranberry, Blueberry, Cracked Pepper, Hot Pepper, Sage and Windsor Blue.

An homage to Britain’s famous farmhouse cheeses of yore, our WindsorDale is a raw milk cheese made using a late 1800 farmhouse Wensleydale recipe and a traditional peg mill imported from England. The peg mill tears the curds versus traditional cutting, for a more open, friable texture. The result is a creamy white cheese with a hint of tart apple, a honeyed aftertaste and firm, flaky texture. Pressed in a traditional mould, the cheese will be made in a 12 lb. clothbound cylindrical truckle mould with a butter ripened natural rind. For ease in cutting, we will also offer […]


Cheesemaker Tom Gilbert’s expertise in soft ripened cheese brings velvety texture and form combining with Head Cheesemaker Rick Wood’s passion for sublime and memorable flavors. We’ve lovingly named the result Lillé, our own version of a French coulommiers. Thicker than a Brie, this decadently sumptuous soft ripened cheese has a downy white bloom with a supple paste core enveloped by a rich creamy body. Reveals a subtle mushroom nuance with notes of nut and butter and a lingering tang.
