Bavette – Uplands Cheese & Meat Raffle
Nov 13, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We are excited to announce that on Wednesday, November 13 at 6:30 pm, Bavette will be hosting an Uplands cheese tasting and meat raffle. Uplands Cheese Company out of Dodgeville, Wisconsin, is the producer of award winning artisan cheeses Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Rush Creek Reserve. These cheeses truly are seasonal and reflect the unique flavors of the farm’s milk and the season.
It will be an evening of all things Uplands. Firstly, there will be a tasting of the Uplands award winning artisan cheeses, presented by the cheese maker, Andy Hatch. In addition to cheese, each year on the farm, they fatten up a few dozen Berkshire on the whey left over from making cheese. These hogs are left out to pasture and are finished on acorns the final two months. Bavette was lucky enough to get a couple, so besides butchering one for our case, they are butchering another one for this event. Following the cheese tasting they will have a meat raffle. Karen will butcher the whole hog ahead of time down to its cuts and will then, for $3 a ticket, raffle off each piece. So you could potentially go home with a pork roast or chops or shank (everything but the oink) for $3.
Tickets to this event are $12 and beverages will be available for purchase. Seating is limited. Get your tickets below…
