Cheesemaking Workshops

Cheesemaking Workshops

We are planning 2 cheesemaking workshops per year (April & August). During these weekend-long courses, participants will be practically involved in making the cheeses, dairy products and cheesy foods which form part of each course.

The venue for this is to be confirmed. It will be hosted on the farm or at Khamkirri Kalahari where various types of accommodation are available. Also there are lots of activities to keep the rest of the family busy. Transport to the farm can be arranged.

The first one is to take place 2 and 3 April 2022. Cheeses covered during this course, in raw milk, is thus far to be Queso Fresco, Mozzarella, Danish Feta, Stir-curd Cheddar and a Fresh Herb Whole milk Ricotta. Participants will also put together a classic cheeseplatte to be enjoyed as a sundowner snack.


Fee:   R 3 500  (accommodation to be booked separately)

Course content to be finalized in time

Programs will be send to participants.

Cheesetastings(Currently closed due to harvest)

Cheesetastings(Currently closed due to harvest)

We offer cheesetasting on the farm. Where it happens, is dictated by the weather. The “Prieël” , “Agterstoep” , kitchen , poolside or  the “Voorhuis” next to the fireplace  will be used. It can be described as a light lunch with something to drink, biscuits, something  meaty, olives and pickles accompanying the cheeses.

During the tasting, I explain what each cheese on offer is, how it is made, aged and should be enjoyed at best. I also suggests a wine that will go well with each one. I also share some interesting nerdy cheese facts with you.It is also possible to taste the three types of milk I use.(s.q.)

The variety of cheeses presented during the tasting will be available to buy.

We offer this service only during RSA public school holidays, weekends and public holidays.


Cost: R350 p.p tasting

Bookings are essential.
