Beginning Cheese Making Class

Come on out to Morning Song Farm for our beginning cheese making class. We'll focus August's class on a few of the fun and easy cheeses that will easily turn you into a cheese maker! Impress your friends with cheesey offerings and try out a fun and different hobby that brings dividends of appreciation. You may find that you'll discover a passion for cheese as we have here at Morning Song Farm. It's easier than you'd ever think! Follow along with handouts and easy to follow recipes so that your success is insured when you repeat the steps at home. We'll talk about which milk to use, cultures, and why certified organic milk isn't your best choice. We'll make three different cheeses; Garlic Ricotta, Herbed Queso Fresco, Fromage Blanc, Paneer, Feta and Neufchatel cream cheese are among those we choose to make and sample during the class. Class starts at 10:00. Arrive 15 minutes early if you'd like, to sample herbed cheeses as well as our just churned butter with breads and muffins and coffee, while meeting your fellow cheese loving adventurers! Get a chance to meet the farm’s beautiful Nigerian dairy goats, and pet our friendly herd. Bring a crunchy granola bar or two and you’ll be everyone’s best friend, especially Carl The Herd Leader who eats anything but really gets excited if it’s crunchy.

Tuition: Even if you are a much appreciated farm member, payment and reservations for our cheese classes need to be made here:

http://www.meetup.com/Morning-Song-Farm-Cheese-Making/events/200054092/?a=wm1.i_6&rv=wm1.i
so that we can use the Meetup software to keep an accurate headcount. Please, no impromptu arrivals. The class size is limited for a reason, so we need to have firm reservations. The pathway to the barn is rough and unpaved, so stash the stilettos or dress shoes; and opt for sneakers or boots for your cheese making day. Once the morning class is full, we'll add an afternoon class if necessary.
