MontanaCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

If the closest you've come to a cow is the milk in your latte, consider a Montana agricultural tour, farmers' market, or culinary vacation. Montana is a virtual barnyard, with vineyards, dairies, ranches and, well, cows. Whether you're looking to sharpen your culinary skills or just muddy up the boots, there's ample opportunity for both. Montana has become a major destination for food and wine enthusiasts, thanks to a rustic bonanza of organic growers and sophisticated bistros. A culture of burgers, ribeyes, t-bones and porterhouses is also alive and kicking. And along the way, treat yourself to a cold one, brewed locally and guaranteed to be some of the best you've ever had.
