Hi, does anyone know of any cheesemaking workshops in either the Otago or Southland area? I live in Balclutha and am prepared to travel. Thanks :)

Our cheesemaking course is available ONLY to guests who stay in our farmstay.

Guests have to inform us at the time of booking the farmstay room if they are interested in taking a cheesemaking class as we have to make sure of our availability.

You need minimum 2 complete days 10 am to 7 pm to do the basic course NOT including Sundays. We don't conduct the course on Sundays. You can extend the course with additional days to learn more cheeses but factor 1 day for each extra cheese you would like to learn. Do factor this in your plans as you need to be here by 10 am on your day of arrival to start the course that day.

There are no fixed dates for the course but according to when you come and stay with us.

Course fees is per person. Please click on the Course Fees tab on the top of this page to see complete details.

We categorise the cheeses into 3 types - soft cheeses, hard cheeses and advanced cheeses. Each category has a particular style of making. All our cheeses are vegetarian as they are made using microbial coagulant and not rennet.

In the 2 day course you learn 2 cheeses of your choice. If you want to learn how to make more cheeses then you can add additional days - one day per cheese that you would like to learn. NOTE: Multiple students on the same day have to learn the same cheese.

List of Cheeses: Soft Cheese, Gouda, Colby, Monterey Jack, Havarti, Cheddar, Gruyere, Parmesan, Feta, Haloumi, Mozarella.
