THE INTERACTIVE MAP ON THIS PAGE
This map shows all of our Vermont cheesemakers. The icons help you identify what locations are open to visitors (they use the “open” icon), which require a call ahead of your visit (those with the “piece of cheese” icon, and which do not have any kind of farmstand – but are often in beautiful areas worth driving through (those with a barn icon). Click on an icon to learn more about that cheesemaker’s hours of operations/visitor hours.
- If visiting during a period of high COVID-transmission-related issues, please call, email, or check the website of cheesemakers to confirm hours
- Many of our cheese producers also manage their own dairy farms; they often ask you to make visits by appointment only so that you can stop by at a time
when they aren’t in a barn or field working!
- Sites that accept visitors (even those open by appointment only) sell cheese on site unless otherwise stated. Self-serve (i.e. unstaffed) farmstands may only accept cash – so bring some along for those visits!
- At the top left of the map below (on a laptop/desktop/tablet), you will see a small white outlined box with a tiny arrow in it; on mobile devices – this often appears as a box at the bottom of the screen with the title “Vermont Cheese Trail” label on it. If you click on this – a menu will pop out and you can turn “on” and “off” what you see in different regions of the map (e.g. if you are visiting the northwest – you could uncheck all the other regions and ONLY see cheesemakers in the northwest part of the state). Click the tiny white box with the arrow in the top left of the map (or left arrow at the top of mobile screens) again to collapse that menu again.
