Quite possibly the only diary that started because of a dog, Everona Dairy is based
in Rapidan, Virginia. Fifteen years ago Dr. Pat Elliott, a family physician, adopted a
Border Collie and then got a few sheep to keep the puppy company. It occurred
to her that people milk sheep, and in doing her research on that topic, Dr. Elliott
learned that sheep milk cheese is considered some of the best in the world. Today,
Everona has over one hundred sheep giving their milk to make delicious Northern
Virginia cheese.

Everona Marble cheese is a semi-hard cheese that is aged four to six months. A
tangy, nutty cheese with sweet floral accents, Everona Marble has earthy tang
that reflects the pastureland of Northern Virginia and a lovely line of ash running
though it.
