 Two Day Workshop  with Capercaillie Consulting/Appleton Creamery.

April 17 & 18:  A hands-on workshop in basic home cheese making. In this two-day workshop we’ll be using simple equipment you may already have at home to make a jack cheese the first day, press overnight, then finish the second. In addition, we will also make feta, yogurt, a lactic cheese, quick mozzarella, and ricotta, depending on the interests of the class. This workshop will concentrate on basic cow cheeses using Springdale Farm cow milk but will also delve briefly into goat cheese. Basic use of ripening cultures and rennet and milk chemistry will be covered. You will go home with cheese that you’ve made!

9 am – 4 pm at Stone Fox Farm Creamery, 398 East Main Street, (Rt 1), Searsport Maine –
