I came back from CheeseMania NYC — aka the Cheesemonger Invitational + summer Fancy Food Show — and suddenly it was already July. Which means we’re just days away from the sixth annual Vermont Cheesemakers Festival, held July 20 at Shelburne Farms on the shore of Lake Champlain.

The historic coach barn will welcome 40 cheesemakers from Vermont and neighboring states, as well as locally-crafted beer and spirits to refresh the taste buds of the expected sell-out crowd.

Cooking demonstrations and workshops such as “A Vertical Tasting” of cow, sheep and goat cheeses are included in the $50 ticket price. Visit the website for more details and to purchase your tickets today.

Fodor’s recently named the Festival one of the top 10 best summer food festivals in the US, and for good reason. It’s the one event of the year where you can taste cheese with some of the country’s finest cheesemakers — do the names Jasper Hill, Vermont Creamery, Consider Bardwell or Grafton Village ring a bell? — and do it all on perhaps the most scenic farm in the country.

See you there?
