Cheese Making Course
Learn How To Make Cheese For Only $49.95
Welcome to the original Cheese Making Course Online! A few years ago, we made the commitment to step out in faith and live our life in a manner consistent with our beliefs. After a lengthy search, we found a house on some acreage that would allow us to put our plans into practice.
Shortly after we moved in, we purchased our first dairy cow. Neither of us had grown up on a farm so, we thought, what business did we have caring for a cow? Well, all is well, and we are excited to share our experience with you.
The first thing people ask us when they find out we have cows is “How much milk do you get each day?” Several gallons we reply. Which is quickly followed by “What do you do with all that milk?” Good question. We make cheese!
As a matter of fact, we have learned to make delicious cheese at home. Actually, I should clarify one thing right now in order to keep my marriage in tact, my darling wife Melissa is the cheese maker at our farm. My job is chief cheese taster. I know, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
Then one fine afternoon, someone said to us, “Why don’t you teach a class on making cheese? There has to be many cheese lovers that would like to learn how to do this.” We jumped into action and created a class that we hold at our farm here in Sarasota. The class has been a tremendous success. Read some comments from our students below…
So, if you have ever wanted to learn how to make cheese and you don’t have the time or resources to travel to remote locations around the globe, then read on. We have documented our experience and created a short online video series based on our in-home class and the terrific feedback from our cheese loving students.
When asked about pursuing hobbies and interests, most people comment that they would love to if they only had the time, extra money or space. Life is too short to dismiss these desires. We too often limit our thinking. The joy of pursuing a hobby or interest can only be understood by taking action. It’s in the process of learning itself that adds color to our lives. So, be encouraged. You will get the help you need along the way by stepping out in faith. Go for it!
Our family has been changing how we do things for several years. Organic and raw foods, environmental influences, preventative health, discarding pharmaceuticals, gardening, buying local, etc. It’s a lifestyle really. Realize that we didn’t make these changes overnight, however we saw rewards early on and we continue to get confirmations along the way. The biggest challenge is finding a reliable source of information to guide us through the process. Kind of like parenting. We’ve had to be resourceful to find the answers along the way.
We ordered a book from Amazon on caring for a family cow. Very informative. Actually, it was sobering. We thought, what are we getting ourselves into? The book is a good resource; however it’s no substitute for taking action.
Making cheese is the same way. And there’s nothing like being forced to pour gallons of unused delicious, beautiful, farm fresh milk down the drain to push you into action. So, Melissa went to her good friend Lori and asked if she would teach her to make cheese. Lori, bless her heart, said “Sure, here’s a book.” And then sent Melissa on her way. In her defense, Lori has been a tremendous help and totally supportive. A true friend. Besides, she has seven children and limited time to hold Melissa’s hand through the cheese making process.
After many attempts, some successful, some not-so-successful, Melissa learned to consistently produce very tasty cheeses. As a result, we are treated to Farm House Cheddar, Garlic Pepper Jack, Cottage, Colby, Mozzarella, Ricotta and other cheeses on a regular basis.
It’s been said that to really master something, then teach others. It takes your knowledge to the next level. It also raises your confidence and encourages you to share your experience with others.
“Dear Melissa and Rick,
Thank you so much for a delightful, educational day! It was wonderful meeting you both and I’m happy to report that my ricotta turned out great, even though I made a boo boo and didn’t ladle the curds out of the whey. Thanks again for establishing my baseline cheesemaking knowledge.
I had so much fun learning the fundamentals of cheesemaking with Melissa. With an easygoing manner and an easy to follow step-by-step format, she showed us the basics and shared her secrets acquired from trial and error. If you’re at all curious about how to make cheese, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.” Sigi M. – Sarasota, FL
“It was awesome and thank you again for sharing!” Dawn H. – Sarasota, FL
“I attended Melissa’s “Cheese making 101” class the other day & the old adage “If I can do it anyone can” really applies. In the class Melissa explains in detail each step of the process & interjects hints & tips gained from her experience in making cheeses. This is a great hands on class, especially for those who learn more by seeing it done than by reading how to do it. It’s amazing to see gallons of milk transformed into pounds of cottage cheese & “wheels” of cheddar. When I left I had the confidence to go home & make cheese the way I like it not the way KRAFT thinks I like it. If anyone has ever thought of making cheese they owe to themselves to check out her next class, it’s well worth it. Thanks Melissa it was GREAT!” Fred S. – Sarasota, FL
“The cheese making class was absolutely technically professional and covered the necessary information for us to begin this art. The class was a delight.” Gem S. – Sarasota, FL
Let’s dispel a common myth. Making cheese at home is too expensive and requires costly equipment. Wrong. Most people already have the majority of kitchen tools necessary to produce cheese and what you don’t have you most likely can borrow from a friend. Even if you were starting from scratch, for less than a $100 dollars, you could equip yourself adequately to make cheese on a regular basis.
The art of cheese making requires a small investment of time, and with our online video course, only a nominal investment in money. How many hobbies can you learn the entire process, with step-by-step video and written instruction for only $49.95 complete? We leave nothing out.
We even include simple plans to make your own cheese press for less than $15 in supplies. This is the exact same cheese press that we use for making our hard cheeses. You’ll save over $200 just on the cheese press alone. Most professional cheese presses start at $250!
Here Is A Course Summary:
Before You Make Cheese: How to prepare your kitchen/workspace. The proper use of a bleach solution to clean your food preparation surface.
Adding Starter and Rennet: How to properly “ripen” the milk and identify the correct firmness of the milk as it sets up. How to determine the correct measurement when adding rennet. Too little rennet and the milk won’t set properly. Too much rennet and the resulting cheese will be rubbery and bitter tasting.

Molding The Cheese: How to correctly use the cheesecloth as a liner for the cheese mold and how to pack the curds into the mold.
Pressing The Cheese: How to properly apply pressure to the cheese gradually to avoid losing required butterfat. As a special bonus, we give you the plans to easily construct your own cheese press for less than $15 in materials. It’s the same cheese press we use for our cheese making and it works great!
Air Drying: How to correctly develop the rind for your new cheese. No, you can’t eat it yet…be patient!
Waxing The Cheese: How to properly wax your cheese for the remainder of the aging process. Includes special tips on cooling the cheese prior to waxing.
Aging The Cheese: It is recommended to allow the cheese to age or ripen for at least 50 days, especially if you are using raw milk for your cheese. We teach you how to age your cheese properly using your existing refrigerator.
