Say Cheese, Please

Want to know how to make, instead of just cut, cheese? Moon Hill Dairy is debuting cheese-making classes this winter at its dairy farm off Highway 129, letting you learn the ins and outs of making cheese, and taking you take home a parcel or two of your own homespun creation as well. The courses last about six hours and include everything from milking and churning to the different techniques for making all things cheese. “It’s a crash course in cheese making—a simple and easy class to see what it’s like,” says Moon Hill’s Errik Hill. “You’ll learn how different cheeses are made, how cultures affect taste, and how aging works. Plus, you’ll make your own cheese curds and feta to take home.” Info: moonhilldairy.com
