Lesson 6: How To Make Cheese Course | The Artisan Cheese Maker
While at Pacheco farms we met Sacha Lauren, owner of Winters Cheese Co. Sacha rents space at Pacheco so that her small artisan cheese making company can exist without its own creamery. Anyone looking to make cheese professionally would be wise to do what Sacha did, and get chummy with an existing creamery. Sacha teaches us about her arrangement on the property, as well as her work running a cheese making class, which is how she met Donna in the first place. We also hear from Sacha about how cheese making is, in effect, a sacred art, and how you must have respect for that. This makes us think we should probably get out kids into cheese…the disrespectful little gremlins!
In this video:
- Renting a space at a creamery.
