Vermont had their own cows and made their own butter and cheese. Factories
eventually came on the scene to commercially distribute products, which was
originally only cheddar cheese. Many Vermont cheese makers highly honor the
farmhouse activity of cheese making and because of the dedication to this
lifestyle and a standard of taste of quality like none other our state
continuously produces award-winning farmstead and artisan cheeses.

Festival. Fodor’sTravel, a top
