About us

A little Cheese House history

The Cheese House design was conceived in 1968 by the original owners, the Russell family. It was built in the shape of a cheese wheel with a wedge cut out for the entrance. Swiss cheese holes were painted on the outside of the building to make it look even more like a tempting block of cheese. Chunky, the mouse, stood on top of the building and served as the Cheese House icon for over 30 years.

The owners of the Vermont Cheese House

The Arlington, Vermont Cheese House was the first and original location, and soon the idea took over and became a small New England franchise. Around 1988 the original building was modified and a souvenir gift shop and clothing section was added.

In 1998 the Serraro family purchased the business and retained much of the original design, products and customer service that made the Cheese House so popular and successful. After Hurricane Irene caused extensive damage to the well-known and historic cheese room in August 2011, the Cheese House renovated with a new modern country look. We invite you to come enjoy our Vermont products in a more personalized shopping experience!

Please remember when ordering that while some products are available year round, there are some that we do not recommend shipping during the heat of the summer. We hope you enjoy browsing our site and if you have any questions please call us. We are happy to make your acquaintance and look forward to providing you with some of the best cheese Vermont has to offer.

Sincerely, Rick & Jody Serraro
