Vermont Cheese Makers

I'll be in Vermont the weekend after Thanksgiving, staying at the Four Columns Inn in Newfane. I'd like to visit a few creameries, looking for good quality, artisanal cheeses including, but not limited to cheddar types.
I've found a map of cheese makers open to the public at but don't know which are worthy of a visit. Shelburne Farms looks promising because it has other attractions such as hiking trails, etc. as well, but is it worth the long drive?
I've been to the Grafton store a few years ago, and found it to be just o.k. I'd like to visit a creamery that makes quality, perhaps award-winning cheese that may not be available at my local supermarket in NJ (as Grafton and Cabot are).
Any recommendations?
