Wisconsin Farmstead Dairy Backstage Pass
Blogger Cheese Underground spotted this gem for us. Taking place as part of the Fourth Annual Wisconsin Original Cheese Festival, the ticket allows a "backstage pass" of sorts for a small group tour through farmstead dairies.
More than 20 farmstead dairies have sprouted in Wisconsin in the last 10 years, and this tour gives you a backstage pass to two of the best. You’ll start your day with Cheesemaker George Crave at Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese in Waterloo, with a tour of the cheese factory, followed by a farm tour and opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with farm cows and calves. Afterward, enjoy an elegant cheese tasting and lunch in the Craves’ new on-farm Culinary Center, where you’ll taste the Crave cheeses in exciting new dishes.
