Two Special Classes at Buckley’s Homestead Supply!
Sunday, February 26, 10-2 and Saturday, March 18, 10-2. Learn to make feta cheese, chevre and a basic hard cheese all in 4 hours! You will take home the feta and the basic hard cheese you make and will learn how to age them, you’ll learn how and why to use rennet and bacterial cultures for cheesemaking, and the simple yet time consuming process for making chevre. We will be using cow’s milk for the cheeses in this class due to the seasonal unavailability of goat milk at our farm. Call Buckley’s Homestead Supply at 719-358-8510 to sign up. Each class is limited to 8 people and costs $85 per person.
We are located 45 minutes south of Colorado Springs in Penrose, Colorado. It’s a beautiful drive!
