Joint PFLA/AOP Networking Event - Tour the OSU Cheese Facility
We met at Withycombe Hall at for a lecture by Lisbeth Goddik, creator of the Beaver Classic™ Cheese, which was followed by a tour of the OSU Cheese Facility. OSU Catering provided appetizers made with the artisan cheese and there was selection of wine and soft drings available. The OSU Beaver Classic™ Cheese was very tasty. Each large round wheel is valued at about $240 and is cut into 24 wedges which are then sold at all home OSU football games, Fridays from 11 am to 1 pm in Withycombe 159, and through their online store.

Carolyn Breece told us about the different types of research that is currently being conducted by OSU and demonstrated how they extract honey from the bee hives. We also got to sample several different flavors of honey. Yum
