WASHINGTON COUNTY — The sixth annual Washington County Cheese Tour is thought to be the largest event of its kind in the U.S.
Cheese lovers will be able to judge these artisan cheeses for themselves from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8 and 9.
“The Washington County Cheese Tour is proof that the local cheese scene is only getting better with each year that goes by,” said Anne Saxelby, owner of Saxelby Cheesemongers in Salem.
“There isn’t a better way to connect customers to the cheese they eat. Meeting the farmers, tasting great cheese made deep connections for all of my customers who love local food. It’s definitely going to become an annual tradition for Saxelby Cheesemongers,” she said.
From freshly made Chevre to ripened Camembert-style cheeses and aged cheddar, the tour will delight palates and enthrall cheese lovers of every age.
