About the event

Making dairy ferments like milk kefir, labneh, and yoghurt are a wonderful and easy way to add fermented dairy foods, which are usually naturally low in lactose and rich in beneficial bacteria, to your diet.

Learn the secrets of gut healing with Elle, experienced Naturopath with additional specialist IBS/FODMAP training from Monash University, and certified GAPS™ practitioner, trained with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, founder of GAPS™.

You will make and take away a lovely jar of yoghurt and a jar of labneh. There will be milk kefir grains to take away to start you on your journey of making your own milk kefir.

There will be tastings of flavoured dairy kefir, kefir cheese, labneh and yoghurt.

Tablehurst is a working farm with livestock. At this time of year our animals are out to pasture with their young and are extremely sensitive to dogs, whom they view as predators. We ask that, if you have a dog and take it for a walk around the farm, it is always kept on a lead and not allowed near livestock. In addition, please make sure you dispose of any dog waste safely and away from farm land. Dog waste may harbour infectious and parasitic agents harmful (and potentially deadly) to livestock.
