Indiana is home to some of the best dairy farms and creameries—some are even known for their award-winning cheeses! And what better way to spend June Dairy Month than by sampling the most delectable cheeses known to man?
Join us in our inaugural Cheese Trail! We officially kicked off the launch of the trail at Crystal Springs Creamery in Osceola, Indiana on June 10.
These are nacho average cheeses! Follow the cheddar brick road with us virtually on social media throughout the month of June to see the droolworthy treats you can try right here in our home state. Then, take off on your own! Visit as many stops as you can to stamp your membership in the esteemed Cultured Club.
Don’t forget to say, “Cheese!” and post your photos to social media with #IndianaCheeseTrail.
