Celebrate Local Cheese: Grafton Village Cheese

Located in southern Vermont, Grafton Village cheese makes delicious cheddar and specialty cheeses by hand, using raw milk from small family farms. When fall hits, their cheddar flies off our shelves. From creamy grilled cheeses to cheddar and apple pie, there isn’t much we can’t do with their cheese. Plus! Their profits go to help promote Vermont’s rural communities through their parent company the Windham Foundation.

The Grafton Cooperative Cheese Company was founded in 1892 by dairy farmers who gathered together in a cooperative to make their surplus raw milk into cheese. In 1912, a fire destroyed the original factory. Several decades later, the nonprofit Windham Foundation restored the company in the mid-1960s, and a new era for the town was born. Today, quality and taste are the hallmarks of Grafton’s award-winning cheeses.
