Observe Babylonstoren’s head cheesemaker, Alta Eybers, and learn a thing or two about making cheese. The class kicks off with meeting the farm’s herd of water buffalo that produce the milk we use to make our traditional-style buffalo mozzarella. Back in the Cheese Room, Alta will demonstrate the craft behind making this creamy delicacy – from cutting the curds to stretching them into balls. When the mozzarella is ready for stretching, guests can feel and experience this unique cheese before it is placed in brine. The class also includes a cool demonstration by Babylonstoren’s artisanal ice-cream maker, Carla Hills, on how to make your own water buffalo gelato!

Guests are treated to a lunch of cheese, meats and preserves – fresh from Babylonstoren’s deli store – the perfect end to a cheesy day!

Steaming coffee from the Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch in the Tasting Room is included.
