NC Foothills Farm Tour - Saturday, June 8th
Polk and Rutherford county have joined forces to show off the amazing agriculture happening here in the Foothills. We are opening up the farm officially for the first time on that day. Buy your ticket or car pass and see cheese being made, peak in the cellars, go for a carriage ride to the overlook, take a pasture walk, check out the pigs, and maybe even have a little ice cream while you're here. And bonus! you can keep the awesomeness going by visiting lots of other farms that day with the same ticket.    
Beer v. Wine - Thursday June 20th at 6pm
The battle that has been raging in everyone's palate:  which pairs better with cheese, beer or wine?  We will taste through a selection of prime LGC cheeses, each paired with a wine and a beer, and allowing you to determine which one reigns supreme!  Held in our Cheese Shop loft in Fairview.
