Hop on the bus with us for cheese, bites, beer, cider and more! Join Anna Juhl and her co-hosts Tenaya Darlington (aka Madame Fromage) and local Vermont food expert Jeff Roberts for a nine-day artisan cheese, food, and brew road trip through the beautiful Green Mountain state. We are proud to present this much-anticipated tour in collaboration with The Cheese Shop of Concord, Fairfield & Greenwich Cheese Company, and Curds & Co.! A true road trip, this Cheese Journey is designed to give you VIP access to northwestern Vermont’s food scene, spending time hanging with and learning from some of the best, award–winning producers of artisan foods in the USA. All of the producers we visit reflect the Slow Food principles of "good, clean and fair". Meet farm-to-table chefs while enjoying expert-led tastings, pairings and local cuisine. You’ll be a guest at the nation’s best cheese event, the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival, where you'll be immersed in fun, food, and education at the historic Shelburne Farms. Kick back during your stay at the award-winning Trapp Family Lodge (of “The Sound of Music” fame), enjoying mountain hiking, swimming, and the acclaimed beer and cheese from their on-site brewery and nearby creamery. You’ll visit Vermont Creamery, the cheese caves of Jasper Hill, and experience Burlington’s thriving food and lively music scenes - making it an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the culture, bounty and deliciousness that Vermont offers.
