Come learn the basics of cheese and kefir making at our small farm at the edge of the Trossachs.
ABOUT THE DAY:
In this course we will cover the basics of culturing milk and creating a range of dairy products in your own home.
We will cover:
Raw vs pasteurised milk
Using cultures and rennets
Fresh cheese making
Basic ageing techniques
You will learn how to make fresh ricotta, halloumi, and a goat's chevre.
This is an excellent course for smallholders looking to make more use out of their raw milk from their house goats or cows. However, you absolutely don’t need to have a dairy animal for this course. We will talk through how you can make cheese out of store bought milk.
You will get to take home a selection of fresh and aged cheese
Please bring an apron. All other materials are provided.
