Woodcock Farm is located near Weston in the Green Mountain region of Vermont. Here, Mark and Gari Fischer run a flock of East Friesian dairy sheep that graze across the farm's 45 acres.
Milk from the sheep goes into the production of a their award winning cheeses. They also buy in high quality cow's milk from their neighbors at Taylor Farm, which has allowed them to expand their range of cheeses. They now produce some cheeses made entirely from cow's milk, as well as some made with a blend of the two milk types. Their cheeses include Timberdoodle, Weston Tomme, Cloud 9 and Summer Snow.
Summer Snow is produced during the summer months and is a lusciously soft, mold ripened cheese made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
Cheeses are aged for a few weeks and characteristically become extremely runny just under the rind, sometimes making them a bit hard to handle for a cheeseboard, but excellent for salads or cooking!
