Learn the basics of goat cheese. We will make chèvre (a French style of fresh goat cheese), and many of its variations, as well as feta and a quick mozzarella and ricotta. We’ll discuss how goat milk is different from other milks, and why certain cheeses are better made with goat milk. Do you have goats and want to make cheese? Are you thinking of getting goats? Meet the goats and decide for yourself!
Offered: April 17, 2017 (This is when enough volume of goat milk becomes available.)
Fee: $150 – one day workshop $50 deposit (non-refundable) due at the time of registration (If a workshop is cancelled due to weather or other reasons beyond our control, workshop is refundable or rescheduled.). We accept cash, check, money order or credit/debit/PayPal.
