Feast with new friends
A brief and picturesque 45-minute drive delivers you to Early Dawn Farm, where participants will be split into two groups to create smaller, intimate learning environments. As you delve into an introduction to basic cheesemaking, you’ll uncover the many secrets that go into crafting mouthwatering, velvety goat cheese, and create your own samples to devour at home. Stroll around on a guided tour of the farm and learn about all the natural goat food the nature trails have to offer. Delight in the antics of the baby goats, or kids, and don’t forget to take photos of your new friends.
After a packed lunch, treat your tastebuds to a wine and goat cheese pairing presented by a sommelier from Vinestone Wine Co. Relish the flavours of four enticing wines and the complementing delectably creamy goat cheeses. You’ll learn the basic skills of wine pairing to apply to your own favourites.
