Vermont Creamery was founded in 1984 by two young entrepreneurs, Allison Hooper and Bob Reese. Allison learned how to make cheese during an internship in France and Bob was working for the Vermont Department of Agriculture. When a Bob needed to procure a fresh goat cheese for an event featuring all Vermont-made products, he scrmbled to find a local producer. He asked Allison, who was working in a dairy lab and milking goats in Brookfield, to make the cheese. The event was a success and the cheese was a hit; Vermont Creamery was born that night.
Its been 34 years since the improbable business partners made their first goat cheese and they’re still in Vermont, making consciously-crafted, delicious dairy that reflects who they are and what they care about.
