Cheese tour coming to Washington County

[anvplayer video=”5126979″ station=”998132″]

If you love cheese, you can enjoy it and help support a local non-profit at the same time.

The Washington County Cheese Guild’s Annual Cheese Tour will be held on September 10 and 11.

Self-guided tours of artisan makers are available, with tastings at each location.

Highlights include live music, hay rides and specialty menu items created just for the tour.

Participants include the Argyle Cheese Farmer in Fort Edward, Dancing Ewe Farm in Granville and Victory View Vineyard in North Easton.

The event is free, but the Cheese Guild is teaming up with Washington County’s Comfort Food Community, which is a Greenwich-based charity that provides food for those who need it, and they’re suggesting a $5 donation.

The tour was created in 2005 by a small group of Washington County cheese makers as a way to bring more people to their farms.
