Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage, announces the 6th Annual Cheese & Dairy Celebration on Saturday and Sunday, May 23 and 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Celebrate Vermont’s rich dairy heritage during this two-day event: Meet New England cheesemakers, sample their delicious artisan cheeses & dairy products, and take part in engaging dairy education programs.

The Cheese & Dairy Celebration will showcase many of New England’s artisan cheesemakers, who will offer cheese samples, discuss their products, and have cheese on hand for purchase.

Especially for the children: cranking fresh ice cream and making dairy headbands and moo masks.
