6 days and 5 nights in Belize, learning to make cheese ...
Deadline: July 31, 2013.
This could be the easiest contest you have ever won! And, the most rewarding.
If you're ready to make cheese and you want to have a good time while you're learning, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. The monetary value alone of this prize is $1108 (and that doesn't include the thrill of making cheese and making new friends).
As you may remember, I took this trip to Belize last January and I experienced the entire package described below. I took a million pictures and wrote a series of 4 articles about it (click here). It was absolutely one of the best times I have ever had. Here's the blurb (that's me at the far left in the photo):
You can say “CHEESE!” Again - Enter the contest for a chance to win a cheese making adventure package!
If you can't imagine yourself enjoying a cheese making workshop, neither did Ian Anderson. But two years ago, at Three Shepherds Farm in Warren Vermont, Ian had one of the best experiences of his life.

Join Ian along with master cheese makers, Dr. Larry and Linda Faillace, of Vermont for one of four workshops (your choice) in the jungles of Belize.
