Among the many foodie trails to explore in the Finger Lakes, the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail will allow you to explore family-owned farms that specialize in creating a variety of artisan cheeses. The trail includes Engelbert Farms, Shtayburne Farm, Side Hill Acres Goat Dairy and Sunset View Creamery. To hit all the trail destinations, you probably want to set aside two or three days to comfortably fit everything in.
Golden Age Cheese in Woodhull produces several types of cheese every day, including fresh mozzarella, mild to aged cheddars, fresh plain and flavored cheddar cheese curds, specialty cheddars and a variety of smoked cheeses.
Parulski Farms of Bath is also known for their delicious artisanal cheeses, wholesome meats, and other exceptional locally-produced foods. The farm’s tasting room allows guests to sample a variety of unique, flavorful cheddars, jacks and cheese curds. Tours can be arranged for those who are interested in observing milk operations, how cheese ages and viewing where the cows lounge. Many businesses in the Finger Lakes Region make it a priority to utilize local dairy farms and producers. Spotted Duck, a Penn Yan custard shop, uses dairy ingredients from local producers and over 95 percent of their ingredients are either certified organic or grown following the same guidelines. Owners Daniel and Elizabeth Hoover have perfected their custard recipe over the years by implementing the use of duck eggs into their creation.
