THE STORY

Established as an operating dairy farm in the 1920’s, Rob and Linda Dimmick are continuing the tradition of family farming. Nestled in the rolling hills of Randolph Center, Vermont, Neighborly Farms decorates the countryside with its red barn and white post and beam farmhouse built in the 1800s. We operate on 168 acres with cropland and grazing fields to support the dairy and a sugarhouse for producing pure Vermont maple syrup. The clean and tidy barn is home to 70 Holsteins—the black and white cows that symbolize rural living at its very best.

Rob and Linda are continuing the family farming tradition because they have a passion for the land and animals. We are a totally organic farm. This means the farm is run in complete harmony with the land and the animals; no antibiotics, no hormones, and no commercial fertilizers. Just pure and natural techniques that keep the cows healthy, happy, and the dairy products wholesome and chemical free. It means that the cheese produced at Neighborly Farms; cheddars, feta, colby, and Monterey Jack are pure and natural. And the best part? The organic cheeses taste great too.

Neighborly Farms of Vermont is not just another dairy farm. At our family farm we have a  love for the land and animals. That’s why we’re an organic farm. It says we care about our surroundings and neighbors. Neighborly Farms produces eleven kinds of delicious organic cheeses. All made with wholesome milk from our well-cared for Holstein cows. At our family farm we make cheese the old-fashioned way, by caring for the land and surroundings it helps us produce the finest cheeses possible.

OUR PRODUCTS

Habanero Cheddar

We’ve long been wanting to create the perfect spicy cheese, and it’s finally here! Our Habanero Cheddar is HOT! This Cheese is a perfect addition for hot chip dips, a zesty pizza topper, or a stand-alone appetizer. Its speckled orange appearance adds color to the table, too!

Chipotle Cheddar

This is simply our pasteurized organic cheddar with organic chipotle chili powder added to the finished curd, yielding a beautiful orange marble effect. The taste is anything but simple. It starts with a mellow smoky flavor (chipotle is smoked chili peppers) and finishes with a nice bit of warmth that lingers and begs for more. Not quite as hot as our award-winning Jalapeno Jack, it makes an outrageous grilled cheese sandwich. Organic.

Sage Cheddar

Available in November and DecemberAn old Vermont favorite, and one of very few Sage Cheddars still available, This has a wonderful flavor and is very popular in Vermont around Thanksgiving and Christmas, and there’s no reason it won’t be just as popular in your home! For a special treat, try it melted onto an omelet. Organic.

Green Onion Cheddar

Along with our plain Monterey Jack, this was our first award winner. It is a simply brilliant combination: mild cheddar with the mild taste of fresh organic green onions-light and delicious! It’s also a very pretty cheese with its bright green flecks of fresh green onion. This one’s so good, the crackers get left behind. Note: We use fresh certified organic green onions, locally produced when available. Organic.

Jalapeno Jack

We don’t know what sparked the ACS judges to pick this as their favorite flavored Monterey Jack, but we’re glad they did. Maybe it’s what we like about it: the perfect blend of fiery hot dried jalapeños and our creamy smooth Jack. Try it in recipes or cube it up to get your next party hopping! Organic.

Monterey Jack

There’s monterey jack and then there’s Neighborly Farms Monterey Jack! A two-time ACS award-winner, and the milder cousin to our recent blue-ribbon winner. Creamy and smooth, it’s the perfect compliment to Mexican food. In fact, it’s the exclusive cheese used at the Cosmic Cantina, an organic Mexican restaurant in New York City. Shred it for cooking, or cube it for smacking. Organic

Mild Raw Milk Cheddar

Typically aged six to eight months-this is the mildest of our cheddars. In addition to the goodness of raw milk, you’ll also enjoy the complexity of this cheese, as nothing from the original flavor profile of the milk is destroyed by pasteurization. Organic. Raw Milk.
