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
