WEYBRIDGE - Cheese. It's real dairy and it's real Vermont. From sharp cheddar to cream, everyone loves cheese. If you have the least bit interest in learning to make your own cheese-it's a skill and art that may pay off-check out this new course on cheese making the Vermont way.
Rural Vermont's popular series of home dairy processing classes are coming to the central Vermont area in July and August.
Rural Vermont partners with Green Acres Milking Shorthorns and Hawk's Hill Farm in Barnard on Aug. 21 to teach Vermont residents how to make delicious dairy goodies using raw milk from local dairy farms. All classes are scheduled from 1-4 p.m. and will include a farm tour. There is a sliding scale fee of $20-$40 per person, and all proceeds benefit Rural Vermont.
Randy and Lisa Robar of Hawk's Hill Farm will lead the class. Pre-registration is required. Call 802-223-7222 for details. Rural Vermont is a statewide nonprofit group founded by farmers in 1985.
