Episode Description
Thursday, Dec 7, 2017 - 8:00 PM    "Yankee Ingenuity" "Yankee ingenuity" evokes the best of the New England character-its practicality and know-how. On this episode of Weekends with Yankee, we visit Shelburne Farms, 1,400 acres of stunning farmland and historic buildings on the shores of Lake Champlain, to learn how they make award-winning cheeses with their herd of Brown Swiss cows. We also experience the world's first mountain-climbing cog railway in a hair-raising ride up Mount Washington, and we take a look around to Strawbery Banke, where history comes alive along the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
