A Trip Up North: The Vermont Cheesemakers Festival
Sarah Spira, monger and domestic cheese buyer at Formaggio South End in Boston, hit up the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival this past weekend. She ate cheese, enjoyed the scenery...and ran into us!
We got to try the new batch of Vermont Shepherd (coming to the shop soon – as is a batch of Mossend Blue from Bonnieview Farm!), and we sampled Jasper Hill’s new alpine style cheese, Alpha Tolman – fingers crossed we can snag a small amount of this rich, nutty, and complex cheese around the holidays. We traded jokes and laughter with Stan and his daughter Shelby of Mount Mansfield Creamery, checked in with our friends at Culture magazine, and cooled off on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain. We also had the opportunity to make some new friends too – come fall, look out for some new arrivals on cheese counter!
