Cave-Aged Cheddar Cheese Feature of Howe Caverns Anniversary
Special reserve removed from cave during annual cheese transfer
Howes Cave, NY- The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard is offering a pound of its special reserve, New York State cave-aged cheddar to the first 30 groups to purchase tickets on August 1 as part of Howe Caverns’ 80th Anniversary Celebration.
The special cheese was removed from the Cave during the Mill’s annual cheese rotation when the cheese is rotated into and out of the Cave’s main vestibule 156 feet underground. It is part of a lot that has been in the Cave since the two attractions started the partnership in 2006.
“We are grateful to Howe Caverns for allowing us to age our cheese in such a highly effective environment. The constant temperature creates a flavor profile that is nice and sharp but still very creamy and rich,” says Bill Michaels, Co-owner of the Mill. “We have been stored this special reserve for celebrations such as this one. We have plenty more for future celebrations. It is an honor for us to share it with Caverns visitors on August 1.” Primarily sold at the Mill and through their On-Line Store at www.flycreekciermill.com
it is available in limited quantities at Howe Caverns.
In addition to the opportunity to Go Underground on August 1, celebration plans include unveiling a second cave-themed motorcycle created by Orange County Choppers and two musical performances. For more information on the Caverns 80th
