Woodcock Farm is located near Weston in the Green Mountain region of Vermont. Here, Mark and Gari Fischer run a flock of East Friesian dairy sheep that graze across the farm's 45 acres.
Milk from the sheep goes into the production of a their award winning cheeses. They also buy in high quality cow's milk from their neighbors at Taylor Farm, which has allowed them to expand their range of cheeses. They now produce some cheeses made entirely from cow's milk, as well as some made with a blend of the two milk types. Their cheeses include Timberdoodle, Weston Tomme, Cloud 9 and Summer Snow.
Made entirely from cow's milk in the style of a camembert, Cloud 9 is one of Mark & Gari's newest creations. The white, bloomy rind encases an extremely rich, spoonable interior which is a rich golden yellow in color. Flavors are of mushrooms and grass, with a pleasant cellar aroma.
