Shelburne Farms

for the holidays | 2019


Our cheddar and maple syrup tell two amazing stories of transformation — how milk becomes cheese, and how sap rising in our maple trees becomes a golden sweetener. These two stories nest within other stories of transformation at Shelburne Farms — how a private estate became a public nonprofit organization and a place of learning for a sustainable future; how people’s lives are changed by their experiences here; and how a growing network of educators are collectively working to re-envision education around the world.


Thank you!

SIX-MONTH

American Cheese Society 2018 winner Our youngest, most versatile cheddar has a supple texture and delicate flavor — like fresh cream and buttered toast. Perfect for breakfast with preserves, or melted in your favorite dish.

After a year of aging, our cheddar develops a subtle sharpness. Tastes of lush pasture and freshly cut hay give way to a delightful finish. Pair with apples and honey or cured meats.

TWO-YEAR

This extra sharp cheddar will melt in your mouth. Its flavor is classically Vermont — savory with a rich, creamy texture. Great with cider, beer, or with chocolate for dessert.

THREE-YEAR RESERVE

Only a small percentage of our cheddar can meet the taste and texture criteria demanded for three-year. The result is a crumbly cheddar bursting with bright and fruity flavors. Enjoy with roasted nuts or a fullbodied red wine.

SMOKED

Our award-winning young cheddar is hickory wood-smoked for six hours to give it a subtly sweet, bacon-like flavor. Delicious with cured meats and dried fruit.

CLOTHBOUND

This time-honored process of binding curds in cheesecloth, sealing the wheel with lard, and cave-aging gives you a cheese with a flaky texture and an earthy flavor. Pairs perfectly with English ale, pickles, and strong mustard.

TRACTOR

A strong-flavored cheddar that is never the same twice — previously available only at our Welcome Center and at farmer’s markets. Enjoy it any way you like for any occasion.

BEER

Our new beer cheddar is infused with Shelburne’s own Fiddlehead Brewing Company IPA to produce a cheese that is supple in texture, with a hoppy aroma and flavor akin to a sourdough bread. Try it with pretzels, your favorite IPA, and honey mustard. TO ORDER:
