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 moved to the historic 50 acre hilltop Bragg Farm in Fayston, VT in December of 2013. Marisa has long term plans to resurrect the dairy farm for butter and fresh cheese production. She is currently working to rehabilitate the pastures to provide adequate forage for a herd of Jerseys. In the meantime, Ploughgate Creamery is producing cultured butter in small batches with purchased cream from the St. Albans Coop. 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.
