A Day A-Whey to Mecox Bay Dairy and Wolffer Vineyard
At long last, spring is in the air!  Saxelby Cheesemongers is pleased to invite you to shake out all those wintry cobwebs (mental and otherwise) with our first Day A-Whey farm trip of the season!  Well be heading out to the East End of Long Island to pay a visit to Mecox Bay Dairy and Wolffer Estate Vineyard.  See how farmstead cheese is made, sip some fine wine, and snack on a delicious picnic lunch as we cavort across the local foodscape.  If weather permits, well also pay a visit to a local beach for a little sunshine and fresh salty air.  Sit back, relax, and let us do the driving!  All you have to bring is your appetite

Our trip will depart from the historic Essex Market on a chartered coach.  The first stop on our Day A-Whey will be Wolffer Estate Vineyard, one of Long Islands pioneer wineries.  Sueellen Hoiles, resident oenophile, will lead us on a tour of the vineyard, explaining the wine making process from the vine to the bottle.  After the tour, guests will be treated to a tasting of Wolffers best wines, accompanied by a lavish picnic lunch including raw milk cheeses from Mecox Bay and an array of other goodies from Sullivan St. Bakery bread to Greenmarket salads.

After lunch, the Day A-Whey continues with a stop at Mecox Bay Dairy, a fourth generation farm located in Bridgehampton.  Cheese maker Art Ludlow will be there to greet us and show us around the farm, from his tiny herd of 15 milk cows to the pigs, chickens, bees, fruits and veggies that all join forces to make the farm tick.  Well see the cheese cave, the milk parlor, and perhaps even get a taste of raw milk, the finest dairy cocktail in town.  Mecox Bay Dairy produces a fabulous variety of raw milk cheese, ranging from the buttery, gooey, camembert-esque to hearty robust cheeses studded with crystalline pockets of sweetness.  

Last but not least, it weather permits, well 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.  Well head on back to the city by 7:30 pm, well fed, well rested, and ready for summer!
