Welcome to von Trapp Farmstead.
Since 2009, we have been making organic artisan cheeses at our family's dairy farm in Waitsfield, Vermont.
We are truly a "farmstead" cheese operation as the milk from the cows is being produced in an adjacent building to our cheese making facility. We are committed to making the highest quality cheese with the best milk possible, using traditional methods of small-scale production and continually striving to improve.
We have set out to be part of the solution to Vermont's declining dairy economy and working landscape. Artisan cheese making on a 50-cow family farm is our vehicle to sustainability. Our mission is to be one example of how to make a small family farm in the center of Vermont economically viable by producing delicious organic small batch cheeses.
