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.

Customer Reviews

Instructor did a great job. We'd love to go back for more classes.

We had a lot of fun learning how to make butter and cheese. The only thing that disappointed was the fact we didn't get to make it with Paula. She did the making of everything but the butter. We were hoping it was more hands on than watching, but it was still very entertaining and we went and made some of our own at home. Yum!
