Making Cheese at HomeWorkshops by Peter and Doreen Sullivan


Peter and Doreen Sullivan present Making Cheese at Home Workshops

Exciting News!

We have some exciting news to share with you! The number of Canadians that make cheese at home is on the rise, but in most cases there is no way to receive recognition or feedback for their hard work and passion. There may be an opportunity for amateur cheese makers to come together for a cheese judging of their creations.

Georgs Kolesnikovs, the organizer of The Great Canadian Cheese festival is testing the waters to see if there is enough interest in this to hold a Home Cheese Making Competition during the Great Canadian Cheese Festival held in Picton, June 6 and 7, 2015.

Please go to:  and express your opinion. If there is enough support, it will happen.
