Shepsog is a nuanced mixed milk cheese reminiscent of traditional Ossau Iraty with a distinctive gray, mottled rind. The blend of cow and sheep’s milk creates a firm, mild paste with a sweet profile containing notes of buttermilk, lemon, caramel, and fresh cream. Crowd-pleasing and snackable, Grafton Village Shepsog pairs well with Murray’s Honey Roasted Almonds and a drizzle of Mieli Thun French Honeysuckle Honey.

Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments.  To request a whole wheel, please contact the Murray's team at orders@murrayscheese.com at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.

About the Maker

  • The Grafton Village Cheese Company was founded in 1892 by a collective of dairy farmers looking to turn surplus raw milk into cheese.   

  • Such cooperatives were common in rural communities in the late 19th century, especially as farmers looked to transform fresh milk into a food product that could be stored for long periods of time without refrigeration.  

  • Today, Grafton Village is one of few producers in the Northeast who produce raw milk cheddars.  

  •  Their flavorful cheeses are made primarily from the high protein, high butterfat milk of Jersey cows.  

  •  A non-profit organization, Grafton Village is overseen by the Windham Foundation as part of their efforts to promote rural communities.
