Fall Farmstead Cheesemaker Short Course
October 28-30, 2019
Three days of deep dive into making cheese utilizing science and art in Pholia’s small, farmstread creamery. We’ll make multiple cheese varieties using cow and goat milk (sometimes sheep also), and do a lot of cheese tasting of the same varieties. This small class is limited to 7 or fewer students for optimum hands on time.

1/7 spots remaining as of 9/7/2019
Join a small group of eager learners for four days of intense, focused, and fun holistic goat care education. From fecal testing to midwifery and yogurt making to hoof trimming, we’ll cover a lot. I schedule a few goats to be due to kid during this time as well as having kids ready for disbudding (with sedation) and much more. You’ll also have the opportunity for questions and interaction with other eager goat enthusiasts!
