The Plymouth Cheese Factory in Plymouth, Vermont, is one of the oldest cheese operations in the United States, and was founded by John Coolidge, the father of the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge. The factory is located at the Coolidge State Historic Site, in the preserved village of Plymouth Notch.
Their line of granular curd cheeses are true American heritage cheeses made to the same exacting recipe, handed down through the generations, that the first European settlers brought with them to the New World. Granular curd cheese is very rare and time intensive, and to our knowledge Plymouth Artisan Cheese may be the only cheesemaker that still produces this distinctive American heritage cheese and makes it available to the public.

The mission of Long Trail Brewery is to produce an American-made alternative to imported German and English Ales. Their first batch of Long Trail Ale was ready for customers in November 1989. An instant favorite, the company grew quickly, and opened at its current site in 1995. Today, Long Trail beers are distributed across 14 northeastern and mid-Atlantic states.
The Brewery is located just outside of Plymouth, in adjacent Bridgewater Corners. You’ll find it on Rte 4, a tad west of the intersection of Routes 100A and 4. Even though it’s beyond our town borders, we’re including Long Trail because you really shouldn’t visit Plymouth without stopping in for a sandwich and freshly-brewed ale!
