Shelburne Farms

Learning for a sustainable future

Cheddar & Maple Syrup for the Holidays 2020


With the pandemic stripping everything down to the essentials, the idea behind Shelburne Farms as a nonprofit is more important than ever: that through education, our society can — and must — find a path toward a sustainable future.


We are committed to developing agricultural practices and food systems that nurture soil, plant, animal, environmental, and human health in the face of global climate change.


At Shelburne Farms, farming and learning go hand in hand.


Crafting our fresh, whole milk into cheese helps sustain the beautiful working landscape here for all to enjoy.

Our handmade, farmstead cheddar is aged from six months to three years, and is available in ½- to 2-pound blocks, either waxed or vacuum-sealed. We also offer exceptional smoked, clothbound, and “tractor” cheddar. Prices range from $10 to $45 a block, depending on age and weight. You can also order gift packages and cheddar samplers — a way to enjoy taste combinations from our family of cheddars and other farm products — starting at $33.

Stewarding our woodlands is essential for maintaining healthy ecological systems, including sequestering carbon.


Maple sugaring is a bright spot in Vermont agriculture of late, and our own operation is no exception. This past spring we were busy making 1,100 gallons of syrup from 2,300 taps. Golden, amber, or dark, maple syrup is an amazing all-natural sweetener. Prices range from $10 to $55.

SIX-MONTH

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

After aging a year, 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 full-bodied 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 Farm Store and at farmer’s markets. Enjoy it any way you like for any occasion.

Shelburne Farms Maple Syrup GOLDEN, AMBER, & DARK

As the sugaring season progresses, the syrup darkens and develops a deeper flavor. Choose the color and flavor you prefer! Served over pancakes, drizzled over ice cream, or enlivening a marinade, dressing, or baked good, our maple syrup makes any recipe better.
