Ploughgate Creamery at Bragg Farm in Fayston, VT is owned and operated by Marisa Mauro. Her love affair with the dairy world started at age fourteen on a sheep dairy in Weston, VT, where she began her cheesemaking education. Over the next decade Marisa worked on numerous dairies throughout Vermont and California. In 2008 she opened Ploughgate Creamery in South Albany, VT and has since moved to the historic Bragg Farm in Fayston, VT in December of 2013. Marisa has long term plans to resurrect the 50 acre hilltop dairy farm for butter and fresh cheese production. In the meantime, Ploughgate Creamery is producing cultured butter in small batches with purchased cream from the St. Albans Coop awaiting the arrival of twelve Jerseys. The butter is cultured for 48 hours creating a delicious, creamy, and slightly tangy flavor. The butter is salted with large sea salt crystals which add to the incredible experience.
