Shepsog

Our expert cheesemakers combine high-quality sheep and cows’ milk to make a gorgeous wheel of cheese, which is then cave-aged for at least five months. Complex and earthy, its butter-yellow semi-firm paste is protected by a velvety rind of white and gray molds.

Shepsog means ‘sheep’ in the indigenous Native American Algonquin language. This cheese features complex, earthy flavors and is a true Vermont original.
