Spanning the rolling hills of Vermont’s Champlain Valley and easternmost Washington County, New York, 300-acre Consider Bardwell Farm was the first cheese-making co-op in Vermont, founded in 1864 by Consider Stebbins Bardwell himself. A century later, Angela Miller and Russell Glover are revitalizing the tradition with goat milk from our herd of Oberhaslis and cow milk from our two neighbor farm partners—the Brooks and the Larsons. Rotational grazing on pesticide-free and fertilizer-free pastures produces the sweetest milk and the tastiest cheese. Our cheeses are made by hand in small batches from whole, fresh milk that is antibiotic and hormone free. Only microbial (non-animal) rennet is used in our cheese making. All of our cheeses are aged on the farm in our extensive system of caves.
We sell at the Dorset and Manchester, VT farmers markets. In New York City find us at Greenmarkets in Williamsburg, Union Square, Abingdon Sq., Jackson Heights, Ditmas Park, and Carroll Gardens. Our retailers include: Bedford Cheese, Brattleboro Coop, Cow Girl Creamery, Farmstead, Formaggio, Healthy Living Market, Murray’s, Pastoral, Rubiner’s, Saxelby Cheesemongers, and Whole Foods Market. Our restaurant partners include: ABC Kitchen, Daniel, The Equinox, Jean-Georges, Marlowe & Sons, No. 9 Park, Per Se, Blue Hill, and The Weathersfield Inn.
