We have been searching for someone to speak with the club about affinage (cheese aging), and also we have been hoping for a chance at a backstage tour of a creamery---lucky us, we've got a chance for both! Jennifer Bice, owner of Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, has taken an interest and will host a tour for us at the creamery on Thursday, June 23, 6:30 PM. This is a special after-work opportunity just for club members. Due to space and practical tour considerations, we will be limiting the RSVP list to PAID MEMBERS and will be capping it at 30 people. First come first served on the RSVP list and limiting to 1 guest.
Along with the creamery tour, we will spend some time discussing home cheese caves and cheese aging for a comparison with our commercial lesson. Please bring along food and drink to share...particularly your homemade cheese!
Jennifer has provided us with the following parking instructions:
"It is probably best to mention that it is in the old apple processingcenter on the corner of Occidental and Hwy 116 as some people are looking for a small creamery and farm and it doesn't occur to them that we are in this facility. Also, have them drive in, go straight back, and park anywhere near the stainless steel silos with the Redwood Hill Farm logo. Since it is after hours, we will use the doors behind the silos rather than being directed to the office which will not be open."
