Local cheese, butter?

Does anyone know of local cheese or butter makers? I'd arbitrarily say that VT isn't local but RI NH ME and CT are, but heck, tell me about any place.

  1. here's some mass places:

    and if you go to formaggio's and ask about other local cheeses, they can tell you a lot.

    1. that is kinda arbitrary, since vermont is known for its cows!

        Yeah, I was just being difficult, trying to get some suggestions other than in Vermont.

      2. This lady is always at the Brookline Farmer's Market in the summer, cheerily handing out samples of her yummy goat cheese. I'm partial to the smoked variety and the wasabi, but she's got lots of variety. They ship in the non-farmer's market season.

        1. Great Hill Blue in Marion MA - also have a look through this list - http://www.farmfreshri.org/food/foodc...

          1. Sankow's Beaverbrook Farm in Lyme, Ct. makes Jersey Cows milk cheeses, yogurt and ice cream and Sheep's milk cheeses, yogurt. All there stuff is great. You can go to the farm and buy it or they sell to a bunch of gourmet stores, like Nika's , Whole foods, ect..
            They also sell at Farmer's Markets in Greenwich, West hartford and New haven.
