    Winter is “cheddar weather.” Come in from the cold and join Peter Kindel, Hawthorne Valley Farm’s cheesemaker, for a day of hands-on cheesemaking. We will see the cheddaring process from start ot finish and taste a number of cheddars for fun.

    Peter Kindel has been making, selling, tasting, and teaching about cheese for 18 years. What began as a hobby evolved into studying cheesemaking in France, England, and Scotland. Since, Peter has worked in highly-acclaimed cheese outlets in New York City including Picholine, Artisanal, and Murray’s Cheese. He has been a cheesemaker at creameries in Vermont, Colorado, and California and is currently the cheesemaker at the Hawthorne Valley Farm Creamery in New York’s Hudson Valley.
