Morning Song Farm’s Private Cheese Making Class
A fun farm activity, our farmstay guests take home a skill that they’ll enjoy again and again. Learn how to easily make several fresh cheeses that are amazingly easy to make and don’t take a great deal of time or require costly supplies. Please make reservations for this activity when you book, so that we can pencil this 2-3 hour class in for you. (Cost is $140 for one to six participants.) This significantly discounted offer is only available to our overnight farmstay guests. As much fun as it seems it might be to include your younger child, it rarely works here for this class. Our experience on the farm is that small children don’t usually have the attention span needed to complete the class. Full refund if cancelled 24 hours before class start time. No refund if cancelled after.
Hand-Churned Ice Cream Activity
Learn why manually hand-churned ice cream tastes so smooth and creamy without additives, and provides a much more store-bought finish than electric machines. Our hand crank ice cream machine was crafted by the Pennsylvania Amish and is a work of art. We provide everything your group needs but the hand cranking muscle! (Cost is $130 for one to six participants.) Fun for all ages, group members take turns churning until ice cream is ready, or let our crew member do all the work for you! toppings, cones, ice cream containers included. This is fun for all ages!
Great class to introduce you to the joys of making your own jam. The class is in two parts: making jam, and canning jam. Learning both are required if you want jam that doesn’t require refrigerator. We can into small jars suitable for gift giving, and provide embellishments and ribbons. Go home with several gifts already packaged and wrapped! We focus on teaching a lower sugar, intensely flavored jam using our own pectin made in class from citrus grown here on the farm, and Pomona’s all natural citrus-based pectin. Less sugar means more fruit, and more flavor! (Cost is $140 for one to six participants.)
Making your own bread and fresh, delicious butter is easy! Learn how we make it here with faster rising techniques and our fun, fail-safe recipes. Discover how easy it is to make your own additive-free pure butter and have some fun with our butter molds to make your presentation even more unique. Return home a bread and butter maker for life!
(Cost is $140 for one to six participants.)
If you’ve admired the abstract beauty of swirled paintings at a recent gallery visit and would love to learn the technique yourself…here’s your chance! It’s a two day process at minimum, so only visitors staying for two days or more can avail themselves of this class. Resident artist, Tess buono, will assist you (She suggests that children must be 8 years of age or so) through the entire process; from choosing colors to the best techniques and supplies to achieve professional results.
$125 for one (large) 24″x24″ canvas, or two (small) 12″x12″ canvases, irrespective of number of participants. All supplies (and supply lists so you can do this at home) included. Additional charge for additional canvases.

The property’s garden includes a small barn, and miniature, Japanese Bantam chickens. They enjoy the same food you do…and will always appreciate your meal scraps and treats!
What can we say? These guys are always happy to oblige a visitor’s offer of tasty Alpaca treats, which we provide. Guard animals, they work hard at protecting our large flock of egg-producing chickens, and you’ll usually see them with their flock at their feet. Dusty and Silverado will come right up to their corral fence line whenever visitors pass by, in the hopes they’d like to stop for a moment and offer a treat. They’ll eat right of of your hand! And don’t forget their chickens, we keep a can of chicken treats available for guests’ use, too!
