Cheese Making Intensive

December 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Spend the afternoon alongside our cheese maker and observe his process of turning 200 gallons of our Jersey milk into our rich and creamy farmstead cheese.  You’ll start in the Creamery just after the milk has been pasteurized and begin your in-depth, instructional cheese making day.  A comprehensive learning experience will follow, covering everything from rennet and rinds to brines and molds.  You’ll watch the process from coagulation to hooping with opportunities to ask questions at every step.  Lunch and cheese to take home included.  This class is for those considering cheese making as a career, serious hobby cheese makers looking to further their learning, or anyone looking for a distinctive experience and fascinating view into the world of cheese. Sessions limited to 4 participants.  Significant periods of standing required.

PLEASE NOTE: We are able to run this program and various MONDAYS and THURSDAYS (when we make cheese). Email crouillard@thetrustees.org for the most up to date availibility and to reserve your spot!
