Description

Minimum 4 to proceed with the class and maximum 8.

The day includes pre course coffee & tea,  along with lunch, cheese and homemade preserve tastings, but most importantly, the knowledge and skills required for home cheese making!  Please advise of any dietary requirements.

In addition to this, the milk, other ingredients (to make the cheese) and a hoop to take home with your cheese are included. All participants leave immensely satisfied with great knowledge and know how, cheese making recipes, class notes and the cheese they produced to share with family, friends and colleagues!!

Our Workshops take the mystery out of making cheese. We teach you how to make HAVARTI, Gourmet Feta, Ricotta and a Greek Style Yoghurt.  The workshops are 100% hands on, fun and interactive. Everything is provided.

The equipment used to make your own cheese is as simple as the process itself.  The ancient art of cheese making is now a process that can be replicated in your own kitchen. 

Making your own cheese is sustainable, it cuts down on food miles, its preservative free, rewarding, and cost effective and the bragging rights are huge! Join one of our workshops and discover how easy home Cheese making really is!

Vendor sincce 2017

Homestead Hill is a Bed and Breakfast/Farmstay practicing in sustainable living.  Our passion for sustainable living was a motivating force that created Homestead Enterprises. We are a small country farmstead and we raise our own meat, produce and eggs. We take great joy in sharing amazing experiences with people from across the globe who attend our educational and fun workshops in Cheese Making, Home Preserves, Sausage and Salami Making along with Wood Fired Smoking. 

Pat and Linda both grew up on farms that were self-sustaining (back then we called it survival).  Pat in North America and Linda in Australia.  Linda learned wonderful skill sets from her Grandmother and Mother (both born in Italy) and gained further knowledge from Pat’s Grandmother and other pioneers while living in North America.  Pat has been Smoking and BBQ for 40 years.  He is very passionate about it and loves to experiment.  Therefore, our classes have both a European and North American Influence.

Homestead Hill is close enough to Melbourne to have all the modern conveniences but still be far away enough to escape the city hustle and bustle.  Homestead Hill is located in the Macedon Ranges that is well known as a picturesque region of fertile river valleys, rolling hills and tree-clad ranges.  We are a 15 minute drive from Hanging Rock an icon of the Ranges and an internationally recognized attraction.   Other points of interest include walking trails, mountain biking and road cycling, as well as some excellent wineries in the region. Homestead Hill offers as much or as little as you may want to do for a relaxing getaway.
