Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company began as a community effort to save a local farm in South Woodstock, Vermont. Today the dairy farm has been transformed into an award-winning cheese company that is creating an entirely new generation of unique farmstead and artisan cheeses. Vermont Farmstead has a multi breed herd, practices sustainable dairy farming, and a team of unique cheese markers brings a fantastic twist to many traditional cheese recipes. In January of 2013, Whitney’s Castleton Crackers joined Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company which makes for a fantastic combination of cheese and crackers!
I recently visited The Cheese Board which is a retail location for Vermont Farmstand Cheese Company. They also carry many other Vermont products such as cured meats, gift baskets, maple syrup, local alcohols/beers and more!
The Cheeseboard was very easy to find and is located at 71 Artisans Way in Windsor, Vermont and is located next to Harpoon Brewery. One of the first things I noticed when I walked into the store was the different range of products they carried as well as all the cheeses!
One of the things I really like about The Cheeseboard is the availability of samples to try. I am adventitious but because of a tight budget I don’t often stray from items I know I like just in case I don’t like it, but with the available of samples of items I am much more likely to buy something I might not normally buy because I can try it ahead of time.
I have to say their cheese is SO tasty!
The selection of local alcohols and beer was fantastic! They even carry a few different brands of Mead which I don’t find very often!
They also have some items available for purchase such as coffee, hot chocolate, ice cream and more. You can also order grilled cheeses on fresh baked bread from King Arthur Flour. Talk about tasty! Their prices are also very reasonable!
The Cheese Board also provides catered Cheese and Charcuterie Platters for any occasion, and you can even rent one of their beautiful cheeseboards for a deposit.
One of the things that REALLY caught my eye while I was there was their BEAUTIFUL gift baskets!
Best of all you can purchase these gift baskets and other items directly on their website!
I absolutely LOVE this store and I highly suggest if you are in the area that you stop by!
