Argyle Cheese Farmer

Marge Randles of Randles Fairview Farm makes cheese from the cows that her husband, David and his brother Will raise. It's a tradition that goes back five generations. Marge was working as an accountant and certified financial planner when they were looking to increase the value of their cows' milk production through challenging times in the dairy industry. Although the herd is small (50 cows), it provides an abundance of rich milk and allows them to make a variety of farmstead cheese like Caerphilly, a semi-firm, aged cheese with Welsh roots (the cheese maker's favorite). They are at 990 Coach Road, Argyle, NY. (1 mile from State Rt. 40 on McEachron Hill Rd. First left on Coach Rd.)

Consider Bardwell Farm

In 2001, Angela Miller and Russell Glover set out to reinvent the first cheesemaking co-op in Vermont, founded by Consider Bardwell in 1864, on 300-acres that straddle the border of Vermont and New York. Now in their eighth season, with cheesemaker, Peter Dixon, they have created hand-made cheeses with their own Swiss alpine goat's and Jersey cow's milk that are sold locally and nationally, and grace many 4-star restaurant menus. CBF brought home a gold and two silvers--Manchester, Dorset, and Pawlet respectively--from the 2010 World Cheese Awards in Birmingham, England in November 2010. They are at 1333 Vt. Route 153 in West Pawlet, VT. (just south of West Pawlet hamlet.)

Homestead Artisans at Longview Farm

Liza and David Porter Started making cheese in 2004 in a tiny creamery in Saratoga Springs, and soon were looking for a place to expand. They moved to their Argyle farm in 2005 and added a herd of French Alpine goats. They seasonally produce farmstead goat cheeses, as well as artisanal cow's milk cheese that Liza creates from the milk of her neighbor's herd of Jerseys and Brown Swiss. The menu of cheeses, some seasonal, consists of five fresh and four aged cows' milk cheeses as well as four fresh and three aged goats' milk cheeses. They are at 177 County Route 43, Argyle, NY. (1/4 mile north of County Route 44.)
