How It All Began

Around 2011, Shirley Richardson, owner of Tannery Farm Cashmeres, recognized that Vermont's goat dairies, which supply the milk for the state's award-winning goat cheese industry, had the potential to produce another high quality product.  Succulent, flavorful goat meat -- as tender as lamb but milder -- is most widely consumed meat in the world. With businessman, Jan Westervelt, Shirley launched Vermont Chevon, a network of farms that now supply markets, butchers, chefs, and consumers with this valuable source of protein. Vermont Chevon's mission is to support sustainable farming that raises animals humanely, respects the land, and insures a high-quality source of chevon for the consumer.
