About the Instructor:
Clifford Hatch comes from a tradition of New England family farming that reaches back to the early seventeenth century. Cliff grew up on his family's farm in Granby, MA. After college, he obtained culinary training and embarked on a career as Chef de Cuisine, first at the Deerfield Inn and later at the Rhode Island Country Club. He has been farming in Gill since 1988.
The farm will provide a simple lunch of bread and cheese. You are welcome to bring something to share (or a bag lunch for yourself if you prefer).
Wear clean, non-fuzzy clothing and practical footwear that can get wet. Consider wearing layers, as the cheese room can get quite hot.
