Event Description

Raise your glass and break out the cheese board—our beloved Geek Series opens with Cheese Geek. Perfect for curd nerds—or anyone with an enduring passion for cheese—this event immerses you in three full days of celebrating a food we also take great pride and pleasure in on the Farm. Together with our own artisan Cheesemaker Chris Osborne and James Beard Award winning author Laura Werlin, we’ll learn about the rich history and art of cheesemaking in an interactive workshop, full of hands-on opportunities to craft your own cheeses. Next, you’ll grow your knowledge with an enlightening seminar on wine and cheese pairings, just the trick to impress guests at your next dinner party. Whether you’re a self-proclaimed aficionado or budding cheese enthusiast, you’re bound to walk away with a fresh appreciation for this special food and a taste for how to serve it or make it at home.
