£120.00

Reeth, Yorkshire Dales
Suitable for 1 - 8 people
Full day

A hands on experience where you will take part in a full days cheese making at Lacey’s Cheese, an artisan cheese factory in the Yorkshire Dales. You will  start the day with 500 litres of local milk and spend the day (approximately 6 hours) turning this into 55kg of various local  cheeses.

You will experience all aspects of cheese making including: waxing of the cheese, cheese grading and (the best bit!) cheese tasting. Simon keeps the course fun and informal and will encourage you to be as hands on as you want to be.

This is an incredibly fun and rewarding day where you will not only learn new skills but you will take home samples of cheese to impress your family and friends with.

This experience includes a delicious lunch of local cheeses (of course!) and refreshments throughout the day.

An absolute cracker for all cheese lovers!
