Bonnieview Farm is a sheep dairy located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, and has been in the Urie family for four generations. The farm is a mixture of rolling pasture, hay fields, and woods, where Neil, Kristin, Tressa Urie and the triplets live and farm.
We milk 180 ewes from May to October while they are on pasture, and make three kinds of cheese with the milk. We raise lambs for meat, and make various products with their wool, including yarn, wool duvets and felt slippers, and we also sell individual fleeces to spinners. We sell our products at farmers' markets, local stores and restaurants, through some local distributors and mail order gift boxes in the fall. In addition to the sheep, we have a breeding pair of pigs, a flock of laying hens, two cows, a llama, a dog and a cat.
Our cheese has been sold at Formaggio's Kitchen in Boston, MA, Saxelby Cheesemongers, Murray's Cheese Shop and Artisinal in NYC, and was featured recently in the December issue of the Brown Alumnae magazine.
