Comments from Living Social, Amazon, Groupon & Living Social User Feedback:

"An excellent adventure! Paula is an fabulous teacher with a wicked sense of humor, which makes it all fun and of course delicious. She not only tells you how easy basic cheese making is, you leave with the skills and confidence to do it yourself. Highly recommended."

"I had a great educational and entertaining experience at Standing Stone Farm . Paula is very informative, pleasant, articulate and gracious hostess. Left feeling very confident in my new found ability to produce the freshest cheese possible for my family and friends. Hoping to participate in a more in-depth class in the future."

"Our teacher was extremely organized, out-going, a great cook and totally hilarious. A great afternoon!!!"

"Love Paula. She is so good with the kids. My granddaughter had a blast. She was fun yet taught the kids. I would recommend anyone to go to any of Paula's classes."

"Paula Butler welcomed us into her home like family and provided education in the art and technique of cheese making. Wonderful experience and would highly recommend!"

"This was such a great experience! Love Love Loved the class! Paula is a wonderful instructor - she made the class fun and informative! I will be recommending this to all my friends. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon! Cannot wait to make these cheeses and butter at home!!"

"The overall experience was wonderful. There was demonstration of technique and hands on to make butter! Paula, the owner & teacher, is thoughtful, intelligent, and funny. I've never even thought about making butter or cheese, who's got that kind of time? Uh, I do, because its easy and fun. I'm going to teach my nephew how to make butter in a water bottle. Most importantly, you get to sample the goods! The butter curled my toes and I was not the only one who went back for thirds! The ricotta and mozzarella was lovely. I'm motivated to not only make butter & cheese at home, but to return to Standing Stone for more lessons."

"A history lesson, chemistry class cooking demonstration, and parenting tips all rolled up into one really cool story worthy outing! I loved this and so did the 9-year old girl I took with me... we can't wait to whip up some fresh mozzarella for the family :)"

"This was by far the best Groupon we have ever purchased! It was family friendly and so much fun!! We will definitely go again. Thank you, Paula!!! You are so cordial, encouraging and delightful.............. and a wonderful chef!!"

"This is one thing that if you don't do it, you'd be sorry. Love the class and looking forward to the next level."
