Inside Look at Artisan Cheesemaking FEB 10, 2024 1pm-4pm
Shepherd’s Way Farms is opening its cheesemake room for an Inside Look at Artisan Cheesemaking class, hosted by award-winning cheesemaker Jodi Ohlsen Read. Saturday, Feb 10, 2024 1pm-4pm
Join us for a unique opportunity to step inside one of few on-farm, fully licensed sheep milk cheesemaking facilities and learn about the process from milk to cheese. Students build their cheesemaking knowledge with a simple foundation of cheesemaking basics that apply to fresh and aged cheeses. Jodi teaches some essential techniques in the cheesemake room with a homescale ricotta make, a renneting exercise, and the second-day steps of a simple fresh cheese make. She also shares pointers to help novice cheesemakers sidestep some common mistakes.
The day rounds off with a guided cheese tasting and question/answer session. Guests also take home a bit of Shepherd’s Way Farms cheese. Class is for adults, registration is limited to 22 people.
