Pasteuriser for Nethercott
Nethercott House has won funding for a new cheese room on the farm!
Using milk from the dairy herd to make butter, yoghurt and cheeses which the children can then eat during their week and which will expand their knowledge and understanding of the world of dairy farming.
These activities will incorporate many skills and learning opportunities, including weighing and measuring, food preparation, chemistry and biology, the environment and sustainability, a greatly improved understanding of good diet, and of animal husbandry. It will also give our visiting children the opportunity to see a task through from start to finish which for many, and particularly those who struggle with academic work, provides a welcome and important opportunity for success.
What we need to make it complete is a pasteuriser. This is a vital part of the cheese room but does cost quite a considerable amount – £200. If you would like to donate towards this cost or the full amount please follow the link below, we would be enormously grateful!
