What to Expect:
Tours are about 1-1.5 hours. You will begin the visit at our Sheep Shoppe, where your guide will escort you into our Viewing Gallery. The guide will introduce you to the farm via specially made movies that describe milking, cheese making and shearing. Through glass windows, you can take a look into our state-of the-art barn with automatic feeding belts, our ewenique rotary milking parlor, and you may even get a glimpse of our cheese maker in action! Next, we will taste a few of the famous Valley Shepherd cave aged cheeses. Then, board a hay wagon for a leisurely ride through our pastures to the Cheese Aging Cave, reminiscent of the Old World aging caves found throughout Italy and France. Tour the cave and let us show you how our cheeses are aged to perfection, a process that makes them so tasty. On the return ride to the Creamery, enjoy a panoramic fall foliage show that only nature can provide. Finish your tour in the Sheep Shoppe, where you will certainly want to nibble cheeses made right here at award-winning Valley Shepherd Creamery. Browse the Shoppe at your leisure; we carry a wide selection of gourmet goodies and gifts. You are welcome to bring a picnic setup and even wine to enjoy on our porch.At times, the cheesemaker may need to certify that your wine pairs well with your selection! Please note that tours are weather permitting!
