Why should you attend?  To be honest, these classes are amazing and teach about the value and EASY & SIMPLE possibilities for using your milk. His book and 3 days of classes last May rocked my world and I highly recommend it.

I make kefir and yogurt almost every week and I am still excited to retake this basic class because I know I will understand his knowledge at an even deeper level.   His classes are simple to understand, interactive and fun.

When: Wednesday, December 30th. 9:30 AM (1st class) and 1PM (2nd class). Potluck lunch in between.

Where: Shawna Barr’s home kitchen at Kid Creek Pastures.
