Make Goat Cheese at Home

October 8, 2017, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm



The simple steps behind making three delicious goat cheeses—chèvre, feta and ricotta – are demonstrated in this class.  The instructor, both attorney and cheesemaker also covers the law relating to raw milk and cheese.





Elizabeth Rich is a Wisconsin attorney who has practiced in the areas of environmental, land use and regulatory law for 30 years. She works for clients who challenge the government and is the current Acting President for Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund.  She has lived on a 40-acre farm since 1995 and raises goats for dairy products and chickens for meat and eggs. Over the years she’s kept dairy cows, pigs, ducks, turkeys, guineas, rabbits and geese in addition to a large garden and fruit production. Elizabeth’s goal is to produce as much of her own food as possible, as her 25 years of experience with the governmental agencies charged with protection of our food supply has led her to the conclusion that she is not protected.
