A Day A-Whey! Day Trip to Sprout Creek Farm and Mead Orchard
Join Saxelby Cheesemongers on a cheesy excursion to Sprout Creek Farm to see first hand how cheese is made. We'll tour the farm, enjoy a hearty picnic lunch, and then spend the afternoon picking apples at Mead Orchard just up the road in Tivoli, NY.
Summer may be over, but there's no reason why you shouldn't enjoy a gorgeous day trip out of the city! The fall foliage will be breathtaking, the cows will be a-milking, and the apples ripe for the picking. Sit back, relax, and let us do the driving... all you have to bring is your appetite!
Our first stop is Sprout Creek Farm, a sustainable farm and creamery in Poughkeepsie. Daytrippers will observe Sprout Creeks creamery in action, and learn how cheese is made, from cow to cave, so to speak. Visitors will then embark on a farm tour guided by Margo Morris, founder of Sprout Creek, to visit the gardens, barns, and on-farm market.
The tour will be followed by a scrumptious picnic lunch featuring seasonal Greenmarket produce. Daytrippers will be treated to a tasting of Sprout Creek's cheeses, including a few gems that have not yet been seen at NYC markets!
The next stop on our Day A-Whey will be Mead Orchards, located in gorgeous Tivoli, NY. We'll soak up a few more precious hours of sunshine and fill our bags (and our bellies too!) with loads of delicious apples.
The tour bus will return to New York by 6:00 pm, laden with plenty of cheese, apples, and happy daytrippers!
