"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.

WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE is a 13-part travel and lifestyle series named for the long-running publication enjoyed by readers across America for more than 80 years.
With New England among the nation's top tourist destinations, the magazine-style program takes viewers on an insider's exploration of the cities, countryside locales and far-flung places in the quaint and scenic region.
The series is hosted by Richard Wiese, (Born to Explore) , an Emmy Award-winning TV personality, author and explorer who has traveled to all seven continents, participated in two expeditions to Antarctica, and cross-country skied to the North Pole.
Amy Traverso, a senior food editor at Yankee magazine who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay, joins Richard as co-host.
She highlights recipes, local flavors and the sense of community that make up the regions' food and dining scene.
WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE offers an "all-access" behind-the-scenes pass to the unique attractions that define the region, and the hidden New England that only locals know.
