Classes on the Homestead

After some bumpy starts and stops, I think I'm FINALLY ready to teach some classes here on the homestead.  I've been asked so many times, but it never seemed like the right time, but now it is!

So below is the first set of classes we are offering...there are more in the works and if there is something you don't see but know we do on the farm, let me know.  We can come up with something for you.

I am uncomfortable with asking for payment for things that I love to do and don't mind sharing. However, that doesn't pay the feed bill or pay for the giveaways that will be with each class.  I have, however, tried to make the fee as low as possible!

Class sizes are limited because my kitchen is small, and I'm anticipating that they will fill up.  I am asking for a small deposit to hold your spot in the class.

Without further ado...

Say Cheese!

Come join us on the homestead to find out how we take our yummy raw milk from Hershey and turn it into farmer’ cheese and mozzarella.  Class fee includes a complete cheese making kit to take home. ($20 value) Class size limited to 6.  $30
