How to assemble a small charcuterie board and platter with selected Vermont cheeses and maple syrups, all with a wonderful vintage flair.
We all love an amazing charcuterie board, don’t we? Living in Vermont, we get our fix of cheese every day, and our go-to place for all things cheese is always the Vermont Country Store, along with our local farms like Taylor Farms in Londonderry, Vermont.
Doesn’t this make you want to go shopping for cheese?
In a quaint store with your own small charcuterie board in mind?
Collecting your favorite cheeses, dips, crackers, spreads, pickles, and more.
You get it, I know you do, right?… If not, check out my more recent visits to the Vermont Country Store here.

Here are a few of my absolute favorites from Vermont:

Autumn in Vermont Small Charcuterie Board
With it being autumn here in Vermont, I’m going to add apples collected from a neighbor’s tree, topped off with some old-fashioned apple cider in thrifted colored amethyst goblets.
Accented and displayed with vintage flair.
The Cheese Platter
This blue and white vintage ironstone platter is loaded with our favorite cheeses.
- Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cabot Cheese
- Boggy Meadow Farm Baby Swiss Cheese
- Maplebrook Farm Mozzarella Cheese
- Champlain Valley Creamery Truffle Triple Soft Cheese
The uncut cheeses are topped off with white farmhouse animal cheese markers that I won in a Christmas grab many years ago, and an inherited sterling silver knife accompanies the cheese.
I scattered a few crackers for taste, with the focus remaining on the cheese.
The apples are always cut last so as not to let the air brown them out too quickly.
