40th Annual Putney Craft Tour

Once each year, just in time for holiday gift giving, our local craftsmen open their studios for the public to come and explore, to experience first-hand the making of our work, to understand our creative process, to hear our stories, and to purchase our unique crafts directly from us.

Located four hours from New York City, two hours from Boston, an hour and a half from Albany, NY, Putney, Vermont has been called the “Craft Capital of the World”. This small town in southeastern Vermont is home to one of the highest concentrations of award winning and internationally recognized craftsmen in the country.

This year, we celebrate the 40th annual Putney Craft Tour. We invite you to spend Thanksgiving weekend at our Craft, Culinary, and Stage event, meandering our back roads, purchasing one-of-a-kind crafts, eating fabulous food, drinking local wine, and taking in a performance at one of our local theaters.

Boston Beer & Cheese Fest - Sold Out

Why Join Us At Boston Beer & Cheese Fest?

It’s craft beer, cider and cheese…what more do you need to know?! If you do need more info, though, the Boston Beer & Cheese Fest focuses on New England-made craft beers, ciders and cheeses. By attending you’ll have access to over 80 craft beers and ciders from 25 local brewers/cideries, as well as tons of cheese from 10 local creameries. If that’s not enough, we’ll be pairing a beer/cider from each brewer with a cheese from each creamery…that’s 25 beer/cider and cheese pairings! If that doesn’t make your mouth water, we don’t know what else to say.

Native & Commercial Starter Cultures for Cheesemaking

Native & Commercial Starter Cultures for Cheesemaking
Rachel Fritz Schaal, Westminster Artisan Cheesemaking & Peter Dixon, Dairy Foods Consulting

Fermentation is essential to making almost all cheeses.  This seminar will outline the basic types of bacterial cultures that are used for the lactic fermentations in cheesemaking.  Information about the preparation and use of both native and commercial cultures, including the roles that these cultures play in making and aging cheese, will be presented.  This will help participants to make the best choices for making a wide variety of cheeses at home or in a small business setting.
