Asheville Area Bed & Breakfast Association Innkeepers know the pleasures of excellent food and take great pride in serving you the best. It’s easy to do in a community like Asheville which celebrates farm to table foods with gusto, even calling itself foodtopian. One growing specialty group is the Western North Carolina Cheese Trail. They provide a map directing you to regional farmers and cheesemakers. You can spend time exploring our beautiful mountain scenery, meeting cheese producers and buying directly from them.
WNC Cheese Trail is also planning the first annual Carolina Mountain Cheese Festival on Sunday, April 26th, 2015 at Highland Brewery. This wonderful location has both indoor and outdoor spaces allowing for lectures, panels, and beer pairings as well as goat milking demos, cheese making demos, a bicycle powered butter churn, a grilled cheese cook off with local chefs, and perhaps a lighthearted cheesemonger invitational. Details of the schedule are not final yet, so check the event page as the date approaches. You can also purchase your tickets on the event page.
