Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company began as a community effort to preserve a picturesque 18 acre dairy farm in South Woodstock, Vermont in 2009, after a water buffalo dairy ceased operation. Passionate local residents raised money to purchase the land, buildings and equipment in hopes that it would remain a dairy farm. With the generous contributions and tireless efforts of an entire community, their dream was realized and Vermont Farmstead became the first community owned artisan cheese and dairy facility in the state. VFCC gently cares for the land and the lives of its animals to make fresh, quality, and artisan cheese available to all. Through a marriage of authentic cheesemaking practices and innovative and playful partnerships within our community, we have created a new generation of multi award winning artisanal cheeses.
