Who We Are
Mission: Support sustainable farming that raises animals humanely, respects the land, and assures a high-quality source of chevon to put on American tables.
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 chevon — as tender as lamb but milder — is the healthiest of all the commonly eaten meats. 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.
