Crawford Family Farm's - Vermont Ayr Farmstead Cheese


Whiting, VT - Sherry Crawford was nice enough to let me come to the farm and take some photos. Here is the "cave" where the cheese is aged. These wheels of cheese are Vermont Ayr, an alpine style farmstead cheese made from raw milk. Their website explains the process much better than I can.


This is the cheese room where the milk is turned into cheese. This is done in small batches and the process is started within an hour of milking, can't get fresher then that.


To keep bad things out of the cheese area, I had to put on a hairnet(not that I have that much) and special boots before I could go near the cheese. Is this a Glamor don't?


Here were some of those Ayrshire cows out in the field soaking up the rays and that clean Vermont air.


These two must be buddies, two future cheese makers.
