Farm Cheese Making Day April 20



Come on out to Morning Song Farm’s beginning cheese making class! Come visit the farm that feeds you and learn something new! We'll focus April 20th’s class on a few of the fun and easy cheeses that will easily turn you into a cheese maker! Impress your friends with cheesy gifts 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 always your best choice. We'll make two or three different cheeses; Garlic Ricotta, Herbed Queso Fresca, Fromage Blanc, Paneer, Feta and Neufchatel cream cheese are among those we choose to make and sample during the class. 

Class starts at 9:00. Arrive 15 minutes early if you'd like, to sample herbed cheeses as well as our just churned butter and freshly milled-macadamia muffins. Warm up with hot coffee or tea while meeting your fellow cheese loving adventurers! Get a chance to meet the farm’s beautiful Nigerian dairy goats, and pet our yearlings and adults. 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: $65 per class per person. Payment and reservations can be made by a quick email here: csa@morningsongfarm.com, if you have a CSA account with Morning Song Farm, or make your reservation and payment here on Meetup if you are not a CSA member. Please, no impromteau arrivals. The class size is limited for a reason, so we need to have firm reservations. Our barn is now heated, but do come with a sweater just in case. 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.
