Cheesemaking at the farm

We are offering two-day workshops in making and aging cheese on the farm. Participants will learn the fundamentals of cheese making and how to set up and improve their own cheese businesses through making cheese and receiving classroom instruction at this licensed Vermont farmstead creamery. During the two days, we will learn to use starter and ripening cultures, make at least two varieties of cheese, and practice some techniques used in affinage (the process of aging cheese). There will be a strong focus on the technical aspects of cheese making and affinage, as well as information on facilities, equipment, marketing, and operations. Participants are encouraged to bring any of their cheeses to the class for all to try. Lunches and course materials, including many tried and true recipes, will be provided. A separate pair of clean water-resistant boots or shoes is required.
