Patty and Roger Scholten purchased their farm just outside of Middlebury, Vermont in 1995. In 2007, they sold the herd of cows that had come with the farm and replaced it with a herd of organic Dutch Belted dairy cows. In 2008, the couple decided to make the move to producing farmstead cheese in order to add value to their milk. They constructed a small cheesemaking plant on their farm, and Patty began to make fresh and mold-ripened cows' milk cheeses from the milk of their herd. Patty and Roger's five children also help out on the farm, making it a truly family affair.
