Twelve of the 13 Trail members will be participating\, with many opening up their farms to cheese lovers that Saturday.

Trail reps remind people they cannot do the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail in a single day. They advise going to the website\, looking at the Trail's interactive Google map\, and planning a route by grouping four or five creameries together for the day. Then add in a few places to stop along the way for food\, like Kirtons Farm Market in Hector or Crystal Lake Café at Americana Vineyards in Interlaken. For people with smart phones\, simply bookmark the map on your phone for step by step driving directions as you go."The Cheese Trail is definitely not like a Wine Trail\," points out Jeremy Sherman\, of Jerry Dell Farm & Store in Freeville. "You don't pull out of one driveway and into another. It can be a good 20 or 30 minutes between farms. You are truly touring. So plan on enjoying some leaf peeping and maybe making a few stops in between and you’ll have a nice day against the backdrop of beautiful fall foliage in the Finger Lakes."  URL:http://culturecheesemag.com/events/finger-lakes-cheese-trail-fall-open-house LOCATION:NY, United States CATEGORIES:tasting ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://culturecheesemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/bur20140324goatfarmc3.jpg20140328.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20141005T110000 DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20141005T140000 DTSTAMP:20141022T062705 CREATED:20140909T144214 LAST-MODIFIED:20140909T144214 UID:13492-1412506800-1412517600@http://culturecheesemag.com SUMMARY:Connecticut Cheese Festival DESCRIPTION:Foodies\, grilled cheese connoisseurs\, artisanal cheese passionistas\, and cheese lovers of every age and persuasion have cause to celebrate this fall.
