Looking for something to do w my 89 year old mother in law we drove 1/2 hour to get cheese we could have purchased from local store, but place not accessible to person w a cane . I had seen cheese making here on "dirty jobs" so I thought it would be fun. I hate to be negative-but please don't... More

Site of the nation's oldest continual cheese making operation. It is about 10 miles from Okemo-Ludlow, VT. Very nice original building. Excellent Vermont cheeses here in a number of different cheddar varieties. People were very friendly here, a real pleasure to stop and talk a while. Not a large place but very Vermont, with great cheeses.

As designated historical cheese maker we were expecting a little more of the "history". Instead there is a small shop with a couple of old cheese making implements with almost no interpretive information. The cheese is average. As a lover of good very old cheddar we were expecting more flavour and bite in the "extra sharp". All cheese was available... More

I remember going to the Crowley cheese factory when I was a child....more than a few years ago. We are about 90 minutes away from Mt Holly and it is such a beautiful area we love going there and alway go to the cheese factory. The country side in Vermont is so lovely and I love the anticipation of seeing... More

Tasty samples of cheese, but no cheese making happening on Columbus Day weekend. We did buy a delicious cheese and honey mustard with ale.

We watched the show "Dirty Jobs" when Mike Rowe was visiting Crowley Cheese. Since we were planning a trip to Vermont, and thought it would be fun to go where the show was filmed, I noted this on my list of possible things to do. We also enjoy visiting farm stores when we travel and we were not disappointed with... More

I have a barber shop in Rutland. I had a customer come in who told me was from Wisconsin. I stated that Vermont produced superior cheese. I mentioned a well known mass produced brand. The conversation got a bit heated, then a couple of old timers said that Crowley cheese is the best. My wife and I took a short... More

We happened by this place while going hiking, and just stopped in. It was not very big...maybe the first floor of a large house. There was no cheesemaking going on at the time (but it was sunday). However, cheese was excellent. We bought several types--we bought a mesquite flavor that was so tasty! Tip--they will let you buy the ends... More

This is a small one room cheese factory. On my last visit the three employees were gathering cheese curd - the first time in 4 or 5 visits that I actually witnessed the process. It is worth a stop to sample their nice cheeses (fresh chive is my favorite) but don't be assured you'll see them making cheese. They have... More

Quaint shop with excellent cheese. Plenty of samples and you can get off priced cheese - i.e. the end pieces that don't fit the shape of a bar, etc.
