Cheesemaking Class at Shanti Farm

Did you know that you can make your own cheese at home? Well you can and it is surprisingly easy.

Join Slow Food Leader and Homesteader, Pam Carlton, for this fun, interactive class.  You will be making (and tasting) a simple chevre (soft goat cheese) and mozzarella.   You will go home with some cheese as well as the recipes so you can make these cheeses again at home!

This class is for ages 16 and up.  Limited to 6 participants so everyone gets a hands on experience.  A minimum of 4 participants is needed for the class to run.

Next class: June 15

Cow Spa Day at Hidden Villa

If you enjoy ice cream, steak, cheese, or even leather boots this is your chance to thank the cows for their gifts. We’ll be preparing an aromatic spa day for our eldest cow Hidden Villa, Cleo. First we’ll harvest fresh herbs from the garden, prepare a plant-based fly repel spray and then enter the cow pen with supplies to rub and pamper our dairy friend. Great for families of all ages comfortable around animals. (PS This is a rare opportunity to enter the cow pen!)
