About Appleton Creamery Workshops
• All classes run from 9 to 3 or 4 depending on the cheese being made, unless otherwise stated. A light lunch is provided for all-day classes.
• All classes must have a minimum of 2 students to be held to cover costs, with a maximum of 6 (our dairy is very small!).
• A take-home cheesemaking kit is available for an additional charge of $25, consisting of a copy of Ricki Carroll’s Home Cheese Making, cheesecloth, cultures, and rennet.
• A slight discount is available for couples or family members, if they can share one set of handouts. If you can provide the milk for the class, a further discount is available.
• A $50 non-refundable deposit is required with registration, balance due at workshop. If a workshop is cancelled due to weather or other reasons beyond our control, workshop is refundable or rescheduled. Workshop fee can be offset if you can provide the milk for the class.
