If learning how to make cheese is one of your new year’s resolutions, you’re in luck.

Birdsong Farm in Enderby is once again offering classes in cheese making.

In Mozzarella & More, participants will learn how to make a simple mozzarella, squeak cheese and traditional ricotta in the March 23 class.

Instructor Naomi Fournier, owner of  Birdsong Farm, said participation is encouraged.

“And everyone who takes a cheese making class will be entered for a free class in 2014,” said Fournier, who raises registered Jersey cows and Nubian goats.

All classes take place on the farm from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with fresh coffee, tea and baking to enjoy while you learn.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, visit the farm’s Web site at www.naomisbirdsongfarm.ca and click on the “Classes” tab. You can also e-mail Fournier at naomisbirdsongfarm@hotmail.com or call her at 250-838-0235.
