Carleton Yoder, Owner and Head Cheesemaker

Carleton established Champlain Valley Creamery in 2003. He has a graduate degree in food science and a background in wine and hard cider making. Carleton was eager to run his own business and in Vermont, with our abundance of amazing local milk, small-scale cheesemaking just made sense. Carleton is supported by a small crew that is just as dedicated to the craft as he is.
