Cheese lovers, here's something to talk about: The Central New York Cheese Trail! 

Who knew that this was even a thing? Central New York cheese makers have teamed up with Oneida County Tourism for an experience that is pretty 'grate' if you know what we mean.

Supported by Madison, Oneida, Otsego and Herkimer Counties, the Central New York cheese trail is a great weekend activity for everyone in the family. While taking a trip on the cheese trail, you'll gain so much knowledge about the agricultural product.

From goat farms, to butter churns, to cheese curds, you’ll want to visit them all, and make sure you do—pick up a trail card at any of the participating producers listed.

The best part is, if you work your way through the whole cheese trail, you'll score an insulated tote back (which from what I hear are pretty nice!)

Aall different kinds of cheeses and locally made products while you're on the trail. You can definitely tackle this in a weekend, or a day if you're feeling up for the drive.
