How Now Brown Cow

By Linda Tancs

Cheese aficionados, take note.  If the process of cheesemaking is as interesting to you as the taste, then take a lesson or two at Shelburne Farms, a 123-acre estate in Vermont.  Home of the Brown Swiss, a breed known for its high milk fat content, guests can pull an udder or two beside an accomplished milkmaid and immerse themselves in farm life, not to mention history.  After all, cheddar’s origins in Cheddar, England date back to the 12th century.  West of Bennington and part of the Vermont Cheese Trail, the inn on the farm offers 24 rooms with luxe accommodations (and a price to match).  Are these green acres the place for you?  Get moo-ving and find out.
