April 2015 is WNC Cheese month. WNC is home to an amazing array of Creameries and Farms. What better way to explore Western North Carolina than meandering along the WNC Cheese Trail. Spend an afternoon taking in the mountain beauty and sampling delicious handmade cheeses. Visit the Creameries and farms and meet the amazing folks creating these delicacies’. Tour their facilities and learn a bit about cheese crafting. You can even purchase cheese directly from the cheesemakers. These award winning cheesemakers range from new operations to pioneers in the artisan cheese movement, using both goat milk and cow milk.
