Making Homemade Cheese in Belize

With a relaxed Caribbean vibe, hundreds of tropical islands, and year-round balmy weather, few people think of Belize as a country where world-class artisanal cheeses are made. But thanks to the dedicated work of dairy farmers preserving traditional European methods, sampling homemade cheese is one of the many surprising benefits of visiting Belize.

In 2012, the intrepid owners of the Caves Branch Adventure Lodge in Belize began producing cheese for its guests and a few nearby hotels. After the cheese became a verified hit, the lodge began offering a course, teaching visitors how to make six different savory varieties. Caves Branch Adventure Lodge now offers a comprehensive four-day, five-night cheese making vacation package taught by internationally acclaimed cheese experts from the Three Shepherds Farm in Vermont. Participants will get hands-on training, literature, and access to all of the necessary equipment on site at the lodge, learning every step of the cheese making process.

This comprehensive cheese-making vacation package includes four days of course instruction, three meals per day, lodging at the resort, and the full use of the Caves Branch facilities, including: swimming pools, the hot tub, and guided walking tours of the 15-acre grounds that include both botanical and orchid gardens. The last day of the course is reserved for a fun group outing. The beginner course is being offered from January 26-31, 2017, while an advanced course will be held January 31-February 4, 2017. Spaces are limited, so interested persons are encouraged to reserve their spot today.

The Caves Branch Adventure Lodge was founded more than 20 years ago by Ian Anderson- an outdoor enthusiast who fell in love with the beauty and vibrancy of nature in Belize. Originally just a simple camp, the lodge has been continuously upgraded and now includes a five-star luxury tree house and all modern conveniences while still preserving access to the nearby jungle, including waterfalls, caves, and navigable subterranean rivers. Actively involved in the local community, Ian and his equally active wife Ella, founded a philanthropic project in 2009 to help local at-risk children and seniors. As part of the project, the Anderson established a petting zoo, and soon found themselves with an abundance of milk from the animals, setting the stage for their explorations in cheese making.

Visiting Belize in January and February is a great way to escape the cold and snow in North America. With all major airlines, including Delta, Southwest, American, and United, now offering non-stop service to Belize, it is easier and more affordable than ever to visit.
