Explore the WNC Cheese Trail and spend an afternoon or a weekend soaking in the beauty of Western North Carolina and sample some of the best handmade cheese being made in the South today. The trail allows you to connect directly with cheesemakers, see where your favorite cheeses are crafted, and buy straight from the producers. Our award winning cheesemakers run from new operations to pioneers in the artisan cheese movement and include both goat milk and cow milk cheesemakers. The cheesemaking community in WNC is vibrant and growing—come see for yourself.
And be sure to come to our first Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest to be held at Highland Brewing on April 26, 2015. There will be tastings, lectures, demonstrations, goats onsite, a Grilled Cheese Challenge with local chefs and 25 cheesemakers and artisan food makers tasting out and selling their great creations. Tickets are only $12 and kids are free! Bring a small cooler or insulated bag to take home some of your favorite finds. Come celebrate with us!
