The Oxford County Cheese Trail is more than just a bunch of cheese shops in one area.  It's composed of 23 deliciously curated spots across Oxford County that have come together to put out a local cheese or dairy offer.  In doing so, these businesses are celebrating Oxford's rich dairy heritage and stepping up the game for visitors.  Those who travel the trail can take part in cheese factory tours, wander museums, try decadent chocolate and of course, go home with oodles of mouth-watering cheese.  Whether you want to try the trail for a day or a full weekend, you're bound to find something you'll love.  Whether that something will make it home without you eating it first...we can't make any promises. If you plan on heading out on The Cheese Trail, create the perfect customized itinerary for yourself using the options below.
