Artisanal Cheese Picnic Package
Stay 2 nights and add this package to the room or suite of your choice
(minimum stays may apply at different times of year).
Enjoy a picnic on your private balcony or deck with three samples of local artisanal cheeses presented on a handcrafted vermont maple cheese board with knife, and vermont made "Castleton" wheat crackers.
Our cheese sampler includes:
4 oz. Consider Bardwell Farm 'Manchester'
'MANCHESTER' is an aged, raw goat milk peasant tomme. A rustic mountain cheese named for Manchester VT, the gateway to the Green Mountains. This cheese has a nutty and earthy bite. Due to rotational grazing on there pastures and the aging process itself, each batch has a distinct note. It is a personal favorite!
4 oz.Taylor Farm Maple Smoked Farmstead Gouda.
This cheese is slowly smoked using maple hardwood chips which gives the original farmstead gouda a whole new dimension. Maple Smoked Gouda is milder than hickory-smoked cheeses and it is the most popular cheese.
It's perfect for slicing as a snack with a variety of fruits, nuts or breads, or even as a midnight snack.
4 oz. Hildene Farm Signature Havarti
Havarti is a traditional aged cow cheese, creamy, semi-soft, smooth and buttery
with a hidden intensity.
It is a simple, washed-rind cheese with irregular holes throughout.
And if you wish, share the experience of touring three Vermont cheese makers
in a behind-the-scene exploration of award winning artisan cheese making farms.
Consider Bardwell Farm, in nearby West Pawlet,
Taylor Farm, minutes away in Londonderry,
and historic Hildene , the ancestral home of Lincolns son Robert Todd Lincoln here in Manchester Village.
Visit the farms, talk with the cheese makers, watch cheese demonstrations,
meet the animals, and sample many of the delicious cheese (products).
All three cheese makers are members of the Vermont Cheese Council and only
a short drive away.
We will include a free map of many of the cheese makers in
southern Vermont in our package so you may visit as many as you like.
