The people in Vermont know their cheese, and those in Grafton excel at cheddar. The shop offers samples of most all of their cheeses, meats and condiments, so you can experiment and discover a new obsession. Their 6 year cheddar (which comes about usually by accident) is the sharpest cheddar I've ever tasted. It puts all other cheddar to shame.... More

Make this a stop on your cheese tour and stock up on a great variety of Grafton cheeses. We went to watch a batch of Grafton being made at the factory right up the road first and then made our choices at the shop. Great tasting samples of the cheese varieties! Just make sure that people are being hygienic when... More

It was a snowy day, the roads were slow and messy, and we were traveling through Vermont...cheese time! We stopped off in Brattleboro which is a real cute town, particularly covered in snow. The Grafton Cheese Co. is an old-fashioned looking farm but inside it's very high-tech and they crank out the cheese. The folks in the store are real... More

This is such a great place to visit if you are a cheese mouse! There are many kinds of cheese that you can taste, plus you can see how the cheese is made. The facility is very clean and well maintained and has things to look at in the lobby.

I had a very nice shopping experience there and picked up an interesting assortment of oils, cheeses, chutneys and butters. Their specialty cheese selection is very good and they have knowledgable staff behind the cheese counter willing to let you sample before you buy. (Some of these cheeses are $25/pound so one would expect that). I found Kate to be... More

Many cheeses as you would expect, but also a great selection of cured meats, bread, jams, dips, maple products and Vermont knick-knacks.

As we drove into Grafton from the south, we stopped at the factory and was able to view cheese being processed. We saw someone standing outside of building and asked where we could buy some cheese and were told to go into Grafton and building will be on left. Store is well stocked with a cafe in rear of building... More

Happened to be by and noticed the sign that they were making cheese. Stopped in and got a detailed overview of their production process. The person giving the overview was responsible for quality assurance of the cheese and excused himself to flip over some curd blocks during his presentation :-) He was also able to give interesting anecdotes as he...

We had hoped to see the cheese making being done down the road but they closed at 2PM and we were there at 3PM. Sampled some great aged cheese and bought delicious goat cheese, crackers and syrup. Enjoyed the crackers and cheese on picnic tables right down the road. Quiessential small country town - loved it!
