WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

We have set up this web page specifically to cater to the BEGINNER, allowing them to make delicious cheese without needing to commit to large purchases of supplies. We have  vials for a smaller purchases and Sachets when you are ready to really dive in,  allowing you to save money at every cheese. We have set this site up so that it is easy to follow and easy to understand. Kids of all ages like to make cheese too, so we strive to keep things as simple as possible so that its easy for everyone. 

  We truly believe you will want to continue making your own cheese! You will be so excited about your endeavors that you will be eagerly wanting to try more recipes and other cheeses.  We want you to feel confident in your cheese making so you can spread the word on cheese to your friends and family.  You will find virtually everything you need on this site to begin your cheese making journey. Our culture line is unique to all others with packaged vials and pouches that have the strains already mixed for you. No guess work and simple to use. Vials are much easier to measure from than pouches for the beginner. Never put your measuring spoon into a pouch as it will contaminate the remainder of your culture. Vials can easily be tipped and tapped right into your measuring spoon.

Our Face book group

How our Face book group 
"Learn to make cheese"
 was created

 We grew up making and eating soft cheeses at our dinner table. After we discovered how to make hard cheeses we decided it was a skill we wanted to share with our friends.
Most hard cheeses are made using RENNET.

Rennet cheeses are very different from acid cheeses made with vinegar or lemon juice like Ricotta or Farmers cheese. 

 We shared our new skill  with anyone that would listen and told as many people as we could that most cheeses can be made at home!

When we realized that our friends were as amazed at the cheese making process as we were, a door began to open for us that we could never have imagined. 

Our friends encouraged us to start to teach people who wanted to know more about cheese making. We were not sure if there would be many people interested. Our journey began when we posted a simple question on a local buy sell everything page on face book.

"Does anyone want to learn how to make cheese?" we asked.

A simple question we thought.

The response was huge. 

We were urged to start a group on face book and that is just what we did!​

LEARN TO MAKE CHEESE

 was born.

We created a face book page that is fun and friendly. A place to learn that is inviting and wants to see YOUR cheese. 

When you are ready to dive in, we are there to help and have fun with.

It's advantageous to have some cheesy friends on your side and our page is just that. Our membership of over 13000 people are from all over the world. Check it out!
