From Pasture to Palate – Shelburne Farms, Vermont, May 13-16, 2018

Vermont is synonymous with rich, sharp cheddar. Discover how 5,000 pounds of raw milk gets transformed into 600 pounds of award-winning artisanal cheese daily on this culinary adventure to see the cheesemakers of Shelburne Farms. Cheesemaking is where art meets science meets unique landscape. We’ll walk the grassy pastures and get up close and personal with purebred Brown Swiss calves and cows. Best of all, we’ll get to taste Shelburne Farms’ mouthwatering aged farmstead cheddar and experience Vermont’s seasonal bounty during prepared dinners at the Inn at Shelburne Farms and at several of Burlington’s best restaurants.
