From the Green Mountains of Vermont, where family farmers are tending the goats and cows, Vermont Creamery's artisan techniques produce the finest fresh and aged goat cheese, creme fra”che and European style cultured butter in the country. For 30 years, Bob Reese, Allison Hooper and their team of 45 Vermonters have been creating new cheeses, like Bonne Bouche and Cremont, as well as continuing the tradition of fresh chevre, that was the start of Vermont Creamery. Setting the pace for artisan craftsmanship, Vermont Creamery has been a pioneer in bringing American Artisan cheeses to restaurants and homes.

Their cow's milk comes from St. Albans Cooperative, a local Vermont coop of 450 family dairy farmers; they all pledge not to use any growth hormones on their animals and they supply the creamery with fresh cream every week.

The fresh and aged goat cheeses are made with milk from 15 Vermont farms and Hewitt's Cooperative in Ontario, Canada. In 2012, Vermont Creamery launched The Ayers Brook Goat Dairy Initiative: the first Goat Dairy Demonstration Farm in the US. The mission of the farm is to demonstrate sustainable goat farming, improve animal genetics and train the next generation of farmers.
