WASHINGTON COUNTY The beginning of September heralds the return of a favorite local event this weekend, as the seventh annual Wa s h i n g t o n County Cheese Tour takes place at six farms around the county. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 7 and 8, this self-guided
tour will allow cheese lovers to explore the bucolic countryside using a special cheese-lover’s map. Guests can sample specially-selected cheeses ranging from Chèvre to Camembert to aged Cheddar at these active farms that raise cows, sheep and goats that supply the milk for the cheese making process. Participating farms include 3-Corner Field Farm in Shushan, Argyle Cheese Farmer in Argyle, Consider Bardwell Farm in West Pawlet, Vt., Longview Farm in Argyle, Sugarloaf Farm in Fort Ann, and Sweet Spring Farm in Argyle. Tour organizers have some
suggestions for enjoying the tour, including wearing closed, sturdy shoes that are easily cleaned. They also recommend bringing a cooler to bring home your cheese purchases. Many activities are outside, so wearing sunscreen and a hat is suggested. The farmers remind everyone that farm animals are not necessarily pets, so visitors should not pet them unless they are invited to do so. In addition, for the safety of the farm animals, do not bring your dog on the tour. A map of the tour and more information is available at www.thecheesetour.com.
