With your location and fondness of Maytag, you probably should check out this:
Welcome to Clemson Blue Cheese | Clemson University, South Carolina
It's on my short list for a visit soon.

Gbh, I just ran across this thread. We used to go to "Cheese Days" in Monroe, WI. It's in Green County which makes more cheese than any county in the nation. The people of Green Co. are predominantly of Swiss heritage and it's very evident once you first see the area. The festival is held every other year on the odd years. We always stayed in New Glarus at the Chalet Landhaus, 15 minutes North of Monroe. Both towns are about 30 minutes from Madison. Also, a few miles South of New Glarus is a little creamery, that is run by one of the nation's master cheesemakers. His name is Steve Workman, a great guy who takes enormous pride in his art. I believe that he is the last cheesemaker in the nation to make 180 - 200 lb. rounds of Swiss Emmantaler cheese. If you ever get up that way, this is the best cheese fest in the country, it's a blast! Great food, great cheese, and there's a brewery too, Minhaus Brewery formerly known as Huber brewery, second oldest in country I think. Here's a few sites to check out. And if you have any questions fire away or DM me.

My husband would love to go to a cheese festival but I don't think there are any in NY. There have been bacon festivals and chocolate festivals here on LI, never got to any of them
