Join us on the farm, where it all began. We will begin our journey by visiting the goats on the farm. We will learn about the properties of different milks as well as how to source goat and cow raw milk here in the Treasure Valley.
Then we will head to the class to learn all about the basics of cheese making. We will review the science behind cheese making, taste some delicious samples and then you will assist in making cheese.We will be making fresh, hand stretched mozzarella and fresh herbed ricotta cheese. As a bonus we will also make a rustic loaf of fresh bread. You will leave the class with your own handmade cheese and prepared bread dough that you can bake at home.
Kids 10 and up are welcome to join in this class with an additional ticket purchase. Please read the FAQ below for information on late arrivals and cancellations.

It is not guaranteed that we will be able to milk a doe on the day of the class but we do make every effort to do so. If we do milk during the class we will allow you to try.
We use raw goat milk for our cheese making as well as cow milk. The cultures we use convert lactose to lactic acid so we do not have the ability to use lactose free milk. Once you learn the process of cheese making you can get the proper culture and practice with lactose free milk at home.
