Great Cheese shop in the heart of artisanal cheese.

Vermont used to mean cheddar, and still makes tons of it. But these days artisanal producers are recreating some of the classic European farmstead cheeses. You can try to visit... read more

Vermont used to mean cheddar, and still makes tons of it. But these days artisanal producers are recreating some of the classic European farmstead cheeses. You can try to visit all of the cheesemakers in Vermont and sample their wares (and we have visited many of them) but if you want to try many of the best cheeses Vermont has... More

We've visited there several times; their Truck Driver cheese aged four years and maybe the best cheddar I've ever had. Their Rat Trap is also very good. There's a decent selection of other goods, but the cheese makes it a standout.

Kind of a hole in the wall joint with great selection of house and local cheeses!!...Ask for a sample at any time and any place to make your purchases easier!!.....Up in this area 2 times a year and this is a "must do" for me!!

It seems that the Vermont of yesteryear has fled this area, which is catering to the Manchester shopping frenzy tourist crowd. This was my last stop on the way home, and I decided to get the makings of an easy dinner of Vermont products. For $40, I got a box of stale crackers; a bland, thin soup mix (I didn't... More

Lots of cheese selections and all over priced. You would get a better selection by going to a local large supermarket.

We stopped here, as we were driving by and being huge fans of cheese, felt that we had to! We were able to sample just a few kinds, which as others have said, it would have been nice to have a few more samples, but you take what you can get. In any case, it is not a huge store,... More

This store is for cheese - not really a fancy gift shop. Keep that in mind. If you are looking for some very good Vermont cheese (Rat Trap, Truck Driver - great very sharp cheeses) this is the place to get them. Don't mistake this for some huge tourist shop and you won't be disappointed.

We are cheese lovers and have found a lot of cheese in the US lacks the depth of flavour we get at home. So, it was great to find a place that sold a wide range of artisan cheeses that are as good as any made on the other side of the Atlantic. We were so impressed we bought a... More

We were in the Manchester/Arlington VT area, saw a FULL PAGE ad in a tourist brochure so thought we'd check this out. When we pulled up to the store it looked promising, part of it was in shape of a cheese wheel. Once we entered the store we were sorely disappointed. It was much smaller inside than expected. They did... More

I bought two Christmas gifts while there; its not just a cheese house lots of nice gifts to choose from. They had recycled mittens. Which means someone bought lightly used sweaters and then turned them into mittens. They are very nice, that was one of the Christmas gifts I bought. Wished I bought more. I also bought cranberry cheese, jam,... More
