Visiting the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance
These are the 12 members of the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance. It's best to call ahead for hours; most of their websites also list other retail outlets for their products. The Cheese Alliance has six "Destination Farms" -- most with regular hours year round, and a few irregular or seasonal hours. They also have five "Production Farms" in the Alliance. Visit their destination farms throughout the year and catch up with their production farms during the Alliance's open houses, the Finger Lakes Cheese Festival and other offsite events!
