Everona Dairy started because Dr. Patricia Elliott bought a Border Collie puppy on impulse in 1992 at the Montpelier Spring Wine Festival. Then she had to get sheep so she could have work to do. One day, she was trying to think of some way for the sheep to pay their own way , and it occurred to her that she might milk them. She didn’t know then that there are more sheep milked in the world than cows. Or that sheep’s milk cheese was so delicious!One thing thus led to another and now Everona Dairy is milking over 100 sheep and has 4 employees. In addition, Dr. Elliott carries on her medical practice, raises Border Collies, writes when she can, and has many other interests.
