The Hayward House is a Bed and Breakfast in Ovid New York. The house is actually in the middle of nowhere, but not too far from everywhere you might want to go, whether it’s wineries, the lake shore, Ithaca, Seneca Falls, or Watkins Glen. But when you stay at The Hayward House know that you will get peace and quiet, and big sky and stars galore.
This blog post is a continuation from the previous. While traveling the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail we met Tom Murray of the Muranda Cheese Company. Miranda makes 13 different kinds of raw milk cheese. Raw milk cheese is made from unpasteurized milk. Unpasteurized milk has bacteria in it, which contributes to greater flavor.
Did you think I meant to say “wine trail?” No whey! Cheese farms are popping up all over the Finger Lakes. We’re took a special trip to ride some of the trail, meet the cheese makers, and try as much as possible!

There are 3 different wineries, run by three distinctly different brothers, plus a brewery —which apparently they can all agree upon.
