Vermont Shephard Cheese

Award-winning Vermont Shepherd cheeses are handmade in Putney during the spring and summer, and then aged for 4-8 months in a special cave before going on sale in late August. Vermont Shephard produces three different kinds of cheese, including the signature Vermont Shephard Cheese (made from sheep's milk and available each year until it is gone) and the cow's milk cheeses Putney Tomme and Timion (available year-round). All together, some 15,000 pounds of cheese are produced annually.

The cheese cave is open for tours on a very limited schedule during the months of August through November. There is no charge for the tours, and visitors get to see the aging cave itself, hang out the sheep and enjoy a cheese tasting. Check the Vermont Shephard Website for information on tour dates or to order cheese online. Vermont Shephard Cheese can be reached at 802-387-4473.
