Artisan Cheese Making Class and Baby Goats

June 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Come to the farm and learn how to make simple farmstead cheese in your home kitchen. During your 2 hour experience, you will be provided a tour of our farm and commercial cheese making operation, say hi to the goats and scratch our livestock guardian dogs on the head. You may even get to see a freshly born baby goat as our kidding season will be in high gear then!
We will walk you through the basics of in home cheese making. You will make a batch of farmstead cheese, sample some of our cheese and take a container of cheese home with you.
Come join us and experience a fun 2 hour workshop that includes our crew of dairy goats and learn how simple it is to create the freshest cheese right in your kitchen.
Our farmstand will be open after class where you can purchase our cheeses, raw honey (seasonal), goat milk soap, pasture raised chicken eggs, and more! We are asking all farm visitors to please wear a mask and practice social distancing. We will be spreading class participants out and keeping class size to no more than 6 people. Please do not arrive early as we have other events going on and are trying to prevent overcrowding. Thanks!
