Cheesemaking 101 + Cheese & Hard-Cider Pairing with 4-H GOATS! – 5:30 pm
August 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$25.00
Join us for this popular educational and tasty happy hour at Longmont’s St. Vrain Cidery! You’ll get to enjoy some delicious cheese and hard-cider pairings while watching homemade cheese being made by Kate Johnson of The Art of Cheese. During this interactive demonstration class, you’ll learn the basic art and science behind the cheesemaking process, the equipment and key ingredients needed and how to source the best milk for making cheese at home.
And to celebrate the conclusion of the Boulder County Fair, we’ll be bringing a special guest or two – this year’s 4-H winning goat(s) who will make an appearance at the end of class for some petting and photo ops. As a special thank you to all the kids and volunteers who help out with the goat program, we’ll be donating $5 from each ticket to the 4-H Dairy & Utility Goat Program!
You’ll leave with some great recipes and the know-how to make a few easy cheeses yourself. We’ll also have Haystack cheeses available to purchase at a discounted price.
