June 25th $51    Crowley Cheese Factory this was a treat, DH kept saying good call sweetie good call.  A National Historic Place, the oldest continuously operating cheese factory in America.  We bought 3 half pound blocks of their unusually sharp cheddar, garlic cheddar and mufallato unusually sharp. A lb of locally made pepperoni, a delicious smoked/spiced maple syrup that they make and some other condiments from local vendors.  Weekday's they do tours of the cheese factory.  Store is open 7 days a week.  Lots of samples!  Very gracious owners.


  1. Looks like someone took a trip to Lake George. lolz
    That Muffaletta cheese sounds intriguing.
    I love a really good seriously sharp cheddar too!

  2. Just for a quick overnight trip. We actually stayed at a historic inn in the town of Warrensburg. Literally a walk from Oscar's smokehouse

  3. Sigh, you go shopping at all the best places! Can I come eat at your house?


I look forward to your comments and contributions
