Vermont Shepherd

Perfect gifts

Artfully Chosen

Invierno is inspired by Basque shepherds, who produce the famous sheep's milk cheese Ossau Iraty in the Pyrenees Mountains. David Major crafts Invierno in the winter months from the milk of his herd of 300 sheep in the rolling hills of Vermont and blends it with organic cow's milk from a neighboring farm. The paste is smooth and dense, and the flavor is bright and nutty, with a hint of citrus.
