Both the honey tour and a cheese tasting tour sound so fun, Jabber. Where you live in upstate New York, there ought to be a lot of places you can do both. After all, Wisconsin-born gal that I am -- my husband claims a day does not go by that I do not serve him cheese in some form or another -- I know that you have a lot of good New York Cheddar produced in your state. Not to mention local wineries, if I recall correctly.

I think our local CVB's (Convention and Visitor's Bureaus) ought to consider better promoting these products. Get local B&B's to promote cheese tasting tours, honey tasting tours and etc.

In Wisconsin, they produce cheese, wine, cherries, cranberries. And of course there is the Nationa Mustard Museum -- featuring "Poupon U" wearables. This museum, if you haven't heard of it, is owned by a zany former lawyer, and just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

All good fun stuff for people to do on weekend visits to our respective states.
