A Cheese Cave in New Jersey

By Linda Tancs

At Valley Shepherd Creamery in Long Valley, New Jersey, would-be cheesemongers spend a day toiling over a tw0-pound wheel that will age in the farm’s cheese cave for 90 days.  Until mid-November, you can see the wide variety of cheeses available at the creamery aging to glorious perfection in the cave during the fall harvest tour.  Of course, as a working farm and educational center, there are activities available year-round.  During the spring lambing tour, for instance, you can watch the sheep being milked on the only rotating sheep parlor in the United States.  Or stop by for the shearing festival in May.  Whenever you visit, you’ll delight in the delectable array of farmstead cheeses available for sampling, including a few award winners.  The farm is located at Route 517 (Fairmount Road) in Long Valley.  Ewe will surely enjoy the visit.
