$32 for a Parent-and-Child Cheese-Making Class ($65 Value)

During three-hour cheese-making workshops, parents and children ages 6 and up learn the step-by-step processes for crafting fresh mozzarella, butter, and cream cheese. The morning or afternoon begins with an introduction to the farm's nubian herd, as each child gets a chance to milk a goat and play with the babies gamboling nearby. Groups then head inside, where they transform the fresh milk into edible dairy products. Workshops begin at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on select days; see the schedule for specific dates.

For Groupon customers, additional family members can join the workshop for a reduced fee of $20 per person.

Standing Stone Farm

Standing Stone's Paula Butler, whose cheese making was recently featured on PBS, demonstrates Old-World methods of cheese crafting during small classes held at her boutique dairy-goat farm. During beginner cheese-making workshops, Paula spins cow and goat milk into a trio of cheeses, including classic French chèvre, cream cheese, and a mozzarella made in 45 minutes. The all-inclusive cheese-making workshop finds students conjuring the aforementioned cheeses, as well as Greek-style feta and a burrata.

During the summer, while baby goats are finding their legs and frolicking around the farm, Paula hosts parent-and-child classes where kids learn how to make mozzarella and shake hands with goat kids. These upbeat, casual classes take place once or twice a month in the dairy farm's large kitchen with 12–15 students per session. Out on the fields, herds of nubian goats roam free, munching on alfalfa and watching farm-share members pick up their weekly gallon of raw goat milk.
