CHEESE AGING BOX & CAVE CONSTRUCTION

thinking things through

Chris & Graham starting the project

 

 

This was the building weekend – Graham generously offered to come down for the weekend and help out … good food & a fun completable project – too good to pass up.  What I needed was a box for the creamery where the cheese could go right after it was made – to develop the favorable molds.  After a couple weeks the cheese will go into the basement “cave” where it will continue to age for several more weeks before getting wrapped and stored in the refrigerator or sold.

We have known Graham his whole life – we met when we lived in Vermont.  He is an awesome guy, from an awesome family.  It was so much fun  having him here for the weekend – we worked, ate good food, played lots of games, went for bike rides & swam in the river.
