We have had a number of inquiries regarding the status of the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival. We are monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and its potential affect on the festival closely. While we currently continue to sell tickets for the festival, we are also aware that this year may prove to be a special one and will post updates or changes to the festival as soon as we have updates for you.
As of 3/26/2020 Vermont cheesemakers have seen approximately 50% losses in sales due to the COVID-19 impact, in some cases higher losses. We encourage those interested in supporting and sustaining Vermont cheesemakers and local farmers during these challenging times to buy Vermont cheese, as well as all locally-produced food products, when you can. We have developed an Online Sales Directory to help everyone in the VT, NYC, MA, and other areas around the country know where you can find and buy Vermont cheeses.
On behalf of our Vermont cheesemakers and the Vermont Cheese Council – you have our love and thanks for providing your support during these tough times. Be well.
