Making Semi-Firm Farmstead Cheese
Instructor: Suzy Konecky makes award-winning cheese at Cricket Creek Farm with milk from Brown Swiss and Jersey cows.
Cheese we will learn to make: a Farmstead Semi-Firm Basket Tomme.
This workshop will take participants through the entire cheese-making process. Participants will begin with pumping the milk into the cheese room, heating the milk, adding cultures, adding rennet, cutting the curds, hooping, and flipping the cheeses. Registrants will take home a one lb wheel of cheese with instructions for home-aging. Everyone will have a chance to taste the different cheesesmade at Cricket Creek and tour the farm. Clean clothing and an apron are strongly advised.
