Join us for one, two, or all three days of this Cheesemaking Bootcamp and receive your Bronze, Silver or Gold Level Certification! You’ll get hands-on experience learning about the tools and techniques used to make a wide variety of beginning, intermediate and advanced level cheeses. Each day we’ll make several different styles of cheese while sampling them along the way, and you’ll take home numerous cheesy creations of your own. You’ll leave knowing the terminology and basic techniques needed to branch off and try other recipes as well. Lunch with wine, coffee and dessert (and lots of cheese!) will be served each day, and we have a few extra activities planned each day as well.
Day One (Oct. 27): Beginner Cheeses 9:00 – 3:00
We’ll also have a creamery tour of the Haystack Mountain Cheese Creamery during lunch along with a nice sampling of their award-winning cheeses.
Day Two (Oct. 28): Intermediate Cheeses 9:00 – 3:00
We’ll end this day with a tour of Briar Gate Farm, a small local dairy goat farm.
Day Three (Oct. 29): Advanced Cheeses & Aging Techniques 9:00 – 3:00
We’ll end this day by taking a field trip to nearby Cheese Importers.
Attend one day of this bootcamp and you’ll receive a Bronze Level Certification; two days get Silver; and attend all three to receive your Gold!
