Cheddar, the fifth annual Washington County Cheese Tour will delight
your palate and if you missed it last yearhere is your chance to redeem yourself.
On Saturday and Sunday,
September 10 and 11, 2011, from 10 AM to 4 PM, five creative farmstead
cheese makers in Washington County will open their farms to the public. Take the self-guided tour through the Battenkill Valley’s lush, rolling hills
and bucolic countryside with your trusty cheese lover’s passport and map at your side (www.thecheesetour.com).
The only prerequisite is an appetite and interest in learning about and
sampling award-winning local cheeses and enjoying the changing colors
of our famed maple trees.
At each farm, guests will sample specially selected cheeses while
experiencing first hand the region’s long-standing cheese making
traditions reaching back to the nineteenth century. All are active
farms, raising cows, sheep and goats that supply the milk for the
cheese-making process. Participating farms include: 3-Corner Field Farm
(Shushan, NY), Argyle Cheese Farmer (Argyle, NY), Consider Bardwell Farm
(West Pawlet, VT), Longview Farm (Argyle, NY), and Sweet Spring Farm
