We held our first cheese making class of September last Thursday.  Mark

came to make his very own cheese using our crate system and made a very splendid Goat Wensleydale whilst we made two vats of exactly the same cheese so he could compare his with ours.

It was Mark’s wife, Ema, yes, with one ‘m’ who got in touch with us and arranged a surprise birthday present for Mark who said he had had a great day and that it was his best ever birthday present.

It was a pleasure having Mark with us

and I have to say, he did make a splendid looking cheese which he took away with him in its cloth and pot to
