Twig Farm is owned by Michael Lee. He and Emily Sunderman started Twig Farm in 2005. The fortyish-acre farm is located in West Cornwall, , about 10 miles south of Middlebury in Addison County, Vermont. Michael makes the cheese by hand using traditional techniques and equipment for farmstead cheese production. Sometimes their son Carter helps.  

For the first fifteen years, the cheeses came from the milk from our herd of 50 goats pastured on our 30 acres in Cornwall, Vermont.  On October 7, 2019, all of our goats moved to Ice House Farm in Goshen, Vermont.   We are still making cheese but the goats now live up in Goshen!  Michael visits with the goats when he picks up milk at their new farm, but we are no longer milking goats.  We are very grateful to Ice House Farm for helping to ensure that our cheesemaking practice can continue.

Michael Lee also makes Twig Farm hard cider from mostly foraged apples that is bottled, marketed and distributed through a collaboration with Shacksbury Cider. Use the contact form on the Shacksbury web site to inquire about purchasing our cider!
