In addition to actively managing their 70 head herd of dairy goats, Gianaclis is the cheesemaker and owner (along with her husband, Vern Caldwell) of Pholia Farm, a licensed dairy located on 24 of the 200 plus acres she grew up on in southern Oregon. Pholia is well known for its artisan, aged raw milk cheeses; classes on small-dairy, goat husbandry, and cheesemaking at all levels; and off-grid, sustainable life-style focus.
You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make three types of cheese from the same simple process. In this workshop, cheesemaker and author Gianaclis Caldwell will show you how to make several easy cheeses at home (even from store-bought milk) and how to use these cheeses in delicious and nutritious ways.
