What you'll do

GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE! You will be welcomed into our 1780s farmhouse kitchen where we will get acquainted over tea or coffee and from there have a short overview of all things cheese (a handout is available to take home). From there we will get cracking - with you whipping up your very own authentic cheese (most likely a Feta-type) which you will take home to enjoy. You'll learn about the 3 main ways all cheeses are made and you'll learn the basics of affinage for your cheese. Cheese snacks will likely be on offer through a tasting platter which will provide an opportunity to learn even about the wonders of cheese! Cheese making supplies and kits are also available for sale, if you wish to jump further into this great hobby at home or provide a gift to others - including kids.

Your host

Heather

Heather

I'm the owner/operator, cheese maker, goat whisperer and jack of all things farmy at Sweetwood Farm & Creamery, an 18th century heritage property beside beautiful Mahone Bay (farmstays available). I've been teaching cheese making for about 8 yrs and have traveled the world to soak up every morsel of tasty knowledge. I've taken plenty of courses, including in Europe and the US. I regularly hold private classes and public ones too here at my goat farm but elsewhere too.

What's included

Food
We usually have some of our delicious cheese on hand for sampling and as an aid in learning all things cheese!

Where you'll be

You'll be in my historic 1700s farmhouse and may also visit our onsite commercial micro-scale goat cheese dairy. You may even manage to hug a goat!

Availability

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should bring along or wear clean indoor clothes.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

No pets allowed on the property, including in cars. We are a non smoking venue. We are a private home and working farm and are not open to drop in visitors. Cats are on the premises for those with allergies, as are livestock guard dogs who live with our goats. Please do not approach our animals.
