$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 1 p.m. on select days; see the schedule for specific dates.
For Groupon customers, additional children can join the workshop for a reduced fee of $20 per person.

About Standing Stone Farm
Standing Stone Farm'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 cheese-making workshops, dairy manipulators will learn techniques to create greek feta, marinated feta, classic french chevre, and an easy 45-minute mozzarella, all using farm-fresh goat milk and provided cow's milk. Parched participants in the basic course can sip on complimentary coffee or bring their own alcoholic beverages from home. 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.
