'Thank you for our cheese master-class. I had a wonderful time and will highly recommend it to friends and family. And remember, if you ever need a dairy assistant, I'm first in line to volunteer. I absolutely loved everything about Abbey farm & our hut by the pond.'
'We had a wonderful time in your learned company and have told all our friends and family what a great day it was. Thank you for being such a good teacher and so encyclopaedic in your knowledge of all things dairy!!'
Yesterday I attended Clive's cheesemaking course, a present from my family.
Clive was terrific and it was a privilege to learn from someone with so much knowledge and passion about his subject.
Very good fun- I'll dxefinitely be recommending to others.
I really enjoyed it- much more than I was expecting.

Course participants will all make our soft cheese 'dancys fancy' which has won a silver medal in the British Cheese Awards, and learn about the various cultures & methods used to make a variety of cheeses. There will also be an opportunity to hear about our butter & yoghurt production.
All methods shown can be easily adapted for home production!
