Very Good Cheese

The Valley Shepherd Creamery is all about cheese. They have a very good selection of locally produced cheeses that we keep going back for. They also have an outlet in Reading Terminal, Philadelphia. Apart from cheese, they stick a range of sheep products and other local produce. The Aldwick Shepherd is a great choice in the cheeses.

If you are into artisanal cheese, that's the place to go! We particularly liked the manchego and iberico style, the Califon, and the goat. They also sell bread (although not of the same grade as the cheese), so you could get your cheese and bread here and then drive about half an hour any direction to a nearby winery to... More

There is an amazing selection of locally produced artisanal cheeses. There are generously portioned samples for you to try out the cheeses before purchase. My favorite is the Oldwick Shephard - very creamy & mild. Be forewarned that these artisanal cheeses are pricey - $22 - $26 per pound. For those who would like to see the cheese-making operation, there... More

Home made cheese. The best you've ever had. Plus meat, hand lotions, jams, toys, animals outside, and tractors to crawl on. Lovely.

We’ve seen and sampled Valley Shepard Creamery products at our local farmers market but hadn’t visited their farm store until today. We arrived too late for a tour of the farm, but were impressed with the store and all the cheese products they offer. I would like to come back in the spring to take the lambing tour.

Great for small children. The shop sells a wide variety of cheese and keep-sake's. Take the tour and watch how cheese is made.

This is a sensational cheese store with all homemade cheeses seasonal natural and absolutely worth stopping in to sample. The cheese tour is interesting but might be boring for children. You may think that the cheese is expensive starting around $20 a pound but this same cheese shows up at some of the finest restaurants in the state where you'll... More
