Day A-Whey to Mecox Bay
Join Saxelby Cheesemongers on a farmy, fun-filled trip to the East End of Long Island to eat some local cheese and sample delicious local wine!  Our Day A-Whey will begin at Wolffer Estate Vineyard for a wine tasting and picnic lunch, and progress to Mecox Bay Dairy, where we'll tour the farm and see what it takes to make delicious farmstead cheese.  If weather permits (and we sure hope it does!) we'll also make a stop at a local beach to soak up some of the first rays of the season.  Sit back, relax, and let us do the driving.  All you have to bring is your appetite!

The Day A-Whey will depart from the Essex Street Market on a chartered coach.  The first stop on our farm-filled adventure is Wolffer Estate Vineyard.  We'll tour the vineyard, seeing what work happens there in the early spring, and learning the alchemy behind making quality wines.  We'll then be treated to a delicious picnic lunch on Wolffer's terrace overlooking the vineyard featuring a pairing of five Wolffer wines and Mecox Bay Dairy cheeses.  Learn the true meaning of terroir as you sample these gastronomic delights made just a few miles away from one another!

The next stop our on day trip is Mecox Bay Dairy, a fourth-generation potato farm turned local food Mecca.  Up until about ten years ago, cheese maker Art Ludlow and his brother Harry grew potatoes for the commodity market before realizing that locals and weekenders alike we clamoring for delicious sustainable food!  They now produce an incredible array of raw-milk cheeses and run a successful farm stand.  Art Ludlow will give us the grand tour of the farm, showing how he makes his delectable farmstead cheeses, as well as the turkeys, pigs, bees, and veggies that make Mecox Bay Dairy thrive.  We'll also have a speakeasy style raw milk tasting, so everyone can taste for themselves what the fuss about raw milk is all about!

Last but not least, it weather permits, we'll pack off to the local beach (just a hop, skip, and a jump from the farm) for a little stroll or nap in the sunshine. We'll head back to the city by 7:30 pm, well fed, well rested, and ready for summer!  Come on, isn't it about time you had a Day A-Whey?
