Simmons Farm Mozzarella Cheese Making Class
September 11 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Come spend a fun afternoon learning the art of Mozzarella cheese making with Simmons Farms resident cheese maker, Karla Simmons. Your afternoon adventure will start with a brief chat about the farm and a tour of the goat parlor where you will meet the ladies who make the milk, see the equipment we use and the space where we milk the animals, hear about the farms history and then you will then spend the rest of the afternoon in our dairy. You will be taught how to make curds, stretch and form the curds into mozzarella, it is a fun and rewarding hands on experience. In addition to getting cheesy, you will be given the opportunity to make homemade fresh butter using our cream and simple equipment you likely already have in your kitchen. We will take a short break to sample some of the other cheeses the Farm produces and also have a sampling of local wine from Newport Vineyards, beers from RIs Revival Brewery or seltzers/sodas from RIs Yacht Club Soda. The class with wrap up when everybody has a delicious ball of Mozzarella, a 1/4lb of butter to bring home and enjoy and a gift bag containing a kit for you to make more mozzarella at home and a Simmons Farm tote bag. We look forward to seeing you at the farm and sharing our passion with you.
