“Vermont has found its niche in the world of cheesemaking,” said Mark Fischer, farmer and president of the Vermont Cheese Council. “We have over 40 creameries here in the Green Mountain State, many of which are bringing home blue ribbons and national accolades. The Festival is the one time a year we all come together to showcase the best the Vermont has to offer.”
The event features over 100 different cheeses to sample and purchase, educational seminars as well as cheesemaking and cooking demonstrations by star chefs. Also on hand are local wineries and breweries.
Tickets will go on sale in February, 2012.
