Here’s a teaser:

2-3 pm “Meet the Cheesemaker” Consider Bardwell Farm of West Pawlett, VT will host a cheese demonstration. The Cheese Traveler will sample from its stock of over 100 cheeses in the cheese case. Consider Bardwell’s cheeses are international award-winners, taking ribbons at the American Cheese Society and World Cheese Championships in the last four years. Their animals rotationally graze on organic pastures to produce the sweetest milk and the tastiest cheese. Their raw milk cheese is antibiotic and hormone free, and nutritionally complete. Rick Reis and Josh Moskowitz of From the Heartland will play.
