Whether you a budding cheese maker, a cheese enthusiast or simply just love cheese, our workshops are a great introduction to cheesemaking.

The workshops are held in our ‘classroom’ on the farm next to our dairy (home of Bidlea Dairy, The Orchards Farm, Twemlow Lane, Holmes Chapel CW4 8DS) they are run by Claire Burt, for more information contact Claire on 0770 9394292 or email claire@burtscheese.com

Cheese Making Workshops we cover the basic principles of cheese-making, giving you the opportunity to get hands on and make your own fresh soft cheese, which you can take away to enjoy at home. We’ll also show you how we make our Burts Cheese, and you can get involved in the process too. This cheese will be cared for and matured at the dairy and can be collected from the dairy at a later date. And of course there’s plenty to sample and taste along the way!

Mozzarella Making Workshops before the class we’ll transform the milk into curds, then in class you’ll perform the all important ‘stretch test’ to understand when the curds are ready for the ‘filatura’ (spinning the curds in hot water), watch as curds undergo this process and gets hands on shaping the mozzarella into balls. We also have a go at making a Burrata (thats a Mozzarella case filled with Mozzarella and cream! After we’ve made our cheese, we’ll serve it with some accompaniments.

Group ‘experiences’ we can tailor our cheese making workshops for private and corporate experiences, for more information contact Claire Burt on 07709394292 or email claire@burtscheese.com
