Two Day Weekend Creative Activity Break

Cost: £240 (VAT inc)

This course is intended to be relaxed yet informative, and we hope a lot of fun! Numbers are restricted to six, allowing for a degree of flexibility and attention to individuals needs. Our aim is for you to be as hands on as possible as we believe the best way to learn is through participation, with emphasis on practical skills rather than concentrating on the technical or theoretical aspects.

With 20 years experience in the dairy industry, to draw on we believe you will return home with the knowledge and confidence to enable you to produce a variety dairy products for your family and friends to enjoy.

It is possible to create a wide range of delicious and interesting dairy products, from supermarket milk. However if you have a desire to keep your own dairy animals there is the opportunity on this course to look at animal husbandry, milking facilities,and other related subjects if you wish. You will of course be able to take home products you have made as well as a notebook with information and recipes relating to the course.
