Farm Tour (with Cheese)

Learn about where your food comes from, milk production and the cheese making process!  Cheese maker, Valerie Miller will lead a tour of the cheese plant, explaining how the milk is pasteurized, processed and made into Orland Farmstead Creamery’s fresh cheese using the milk from their own herd of grass fed Holstein cows.  Dairyman, Paul Schmidt will demonstrate how he milks the cows and answer any questions you might have about milk production.  If you are lucky, you might even get to try your hand at milking! Tour concludes with a cheese sampling and an opportunity to purchase cheese directly from the dairy.  Tours are offered on the 4th Saturday of the month at 11:00 AM and last about 45 minutes.  For tickets visit our website at www.orlandfarmstead.com Or by appointment for groups of 10 or more.
