Kookoolan Farms classes have been recognized by Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, Food and Wine Magazine, Sunset Magazine, Portland Monthly, Travel Oregon, Oregonian FoodDay, and many more publications. Kookoolan Farms has offered over 200 sessions of cheesemaking classes since 2008.
We offer classes on farmstead skills almost every Saturday! Different instructors, different demonstration cheeses, different special topics and techniques every time. Our classes are $45 to $95 per person, and always the course fee includes a $10 coupon good toward anything we sell, plus all cheesemaking classes include a truly spectacular cheese tasting plate, with a selection of at least 6 to 8 premium artisan cheeses, often as many as twelve, both local and imported, relevant to the day’s topic, and intended to inspire your sense of confidence and adventure in your own cheesemaking!
We have one of the most complete and extensive selections of cheesemaking supplies anywhere: we carry the full line of home cheesemaking supplies from New England Cheesemaking Supply Company, the full line of Mad Millie Cheese Making Supplies from New Zealand, Portland’s own Urban Cheesecraft, and exciting specialty cultures from Canada’s Glengarry Creamery as well. We also carry all kinds of equipment and supplies for the home cheesemaker. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and debit cards.
