Without cheese, macaroni would have no friends, and humans would never know what the moon tastes like. Celebrate curd culture with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a chevre-making class with wine and cheese pairings at Quail Run Creamery in Gaston (a $60 value). Classes run 1–4 p.m. on dates according to the farm's schedule.

Quail Run Creamery's co-owner, Scott "Dominic" Catino, draws on experience crafting soft cheeses and pampering the sustainable farm's bleating denizens to teach interactive classes to groups of up to 20 people. Sessions kick off with a tour of the dairy, which lets students learn how artisans prepare creamy delights and dispels conspiracy theories about Superman's role in the process. After a presentation on the history of cheeses, which is peppered with intriguing facts and trivia, tongues quiver in anticipation of a cheese plate. Coupled with tastings of Oregon wines, the platter parades seven different classifications of cheese that run the gamut from soft and mild to hard, complex, and brooding.

Quail Run Creamery's milk comes from the cheerful herds of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats that meander curiously around the 20-acre farm, Quail Run Hollow. The farm sprawls over emerald swaths of forest and pasture, providing a diverse array of nutrients for the goats to produce sweet, rich milk. Classes fill quickly, students should register early to guarantee a spot.

We had a great time, thank you so much!

The whole experience was amazing, from the education about milk and cheese, to the supercute goats to the SCRUMPTIOUS cheese plate with wines...and then Scott made us homemade goatmilk ice cream while regaling us with more fun cheese facts. The Catinos are amazing people and I rave about the Groupon experience to everyone I know.

Class act! Very informative as well as entertaining. Loved the grounds and your entire creamery. The animals, Nigerian dwarf goats, cats and dog seemed to just thirve. Didn't know what to expect out in Gaston, you blew us away! Awesume! We'll be back!
