Join our Hands-On Cheese Making class to get your hands in the vat and help make cheese! If you are a new employee or a beginning cheese maker, this class will help you to learn basic cheese making skills.One-On-One Sessions
Do you have questions that aren’t addressed in the conference topics? Are you looking for personalized feedback? Several conference speakers are available for 25-minute one-on-one sessions. Bring samples of your cheese along if that’s what you want to discuss.
To make the most of your time, plan your questions ahead of time. These sessions take place during breakout topics. One-on-one sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.Cheese Breaks and Tasting
Each morning, we have a 30-minute cheese break. These cheese breaks feature winning entries from the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Also, on the second day of the conference, we have a hands-on cheese tasting workshop. In this workshop, we sample several different cheeses. The tasting is led by a panel of cheese professionals, some of whom have judged cheese for the American Cheese Society. This is a great opportunity to learn what to look for when you’re tasting cheese.Registration information to come.
