Located in Vermont, the Grafton Cooperative Cheese Company was originally founded in 1892 with the purpose of converting surplus milk from local dairy farmers into cheese. Years later, a fire destroyed the original factory.

The factory and the company were restored in the mid-1960s by The Windham Foundation, a philanthropic organization that supports the rural community surrounding Grafton via educational and practical means. Today Grafton Cheese handcrafts artisanal, aged cheddar and specialty cheeses. Proceeds from the sale of these cheeses support the Windham Foundation’s charitable efforts.

Barn Dance is a semi-hard sheep’s milk cheese accented with cow’s milk and cave aged for at least two months. It presents a range of flavors, starting out tangy and sharp and finishing with a delicate note of sour cream.
