Vermont Herdsman is an Asiago style, Italian cheese made from raw milk of cow, made by Parish Hill Creamery in southern Vermont, US. This washed rind cheese is aged for over 9 months that gives sharp flavour with hints of hazelnuts and pineapple. If the cheese is further matured for over 12 months, the interior becomes granular. At the time of maturation, the wheels are brushed with a salt brine that gives a straw coloured edible rind. The cheese is crumbly in texture and sweet and salty in flavour with hints of caramel, tangy afterfinish.
