If you want to read about a very interesting farm, check out the website for Blue Rock Station in Philo, Ohio.
Jay and Annie Warmke have created a center for green living, where they give tours, hold workshops, and model green technology by living in a house made out of trash (their “earthship”) with a greenhouse made out of plastic bottles.
The PBS video at the end of this article tells the story of how it came to be.
It’s a fascinating place, but the point of this particular article is to inform you about their cheese making workshops. Annie sent us this description:
The basics of being a goat keeper, and what to do with the kids and milk are the heart of what we’ll learn about in the afternoon workshop. AND, we won’t forget to talk about milk from healthy, pasture-raised animals as a vibrant, life-giving food that not only bolsters the immune system but fends off countless degenerative diseases that were virtually unheard of just a century ago.
Reservations are a must to avoid disappointment. Be sure to wear sensible shoes that can survive mud, and sun glasses, if it is a sunny day.
Registration for this event is only $35 and includes a tour of Blue Rock Station, the presentation, cheese sampling as well as a proper cup of British tea.
