Finger Lakes activities abound this weekend. The Ithaca Art trail, the Friends of the Library Book Sale in Ithaca....but my mind will be on - food. I wish I had made up the "Cheese Peepers" headline but I didn't.
I hope to be able to go on a cheese tour - the Finger Lakes Artisanal Cheese Open House of 8 farms that make cheese. I blogged on one of them, Finger Lakes Dexter Creamery,earlier this year. Another one, Lively Run Goat Dairy, is one I've wanted to visit for a long time. We've enjoyed their feta cheese many times. A third one, Northland Sheep Dairy, sells its cheese at the Ithaca Farmers Market and it is good cheese too. Still another one, Finger Lakes Farmstead Cheese Company, also sells at the Farmers Market but it is a good opportunity to visit their farm.
If we indeed visit any of these farms I will blog about it later this weekend.
Thanks to the Cheese Peepers article for letting me know about this tour. For all of it being local, I had to find out about this from a Philadephia Inquirer article.
