Cheese Making, Milk, Dairy Home Page
information on this site is intended to aid the home cheesemaker
in learning simple, inexpensive, methods for making quality cheeses
and dairy products for home use.
information here covers making cheese and other dairy product with goat
and/or cow milk. I, personally, use raw goat milk for all my cheeses,
but most of my techniques and recipes were originally developed using
raw Jersey cow milk.
encourage you to break your link from Factory Farmed
dairy products. You CAN make your own at home with
milk from humanely treated animals, either raised by you, or a small
Fias Co Farm Cheddar & Blue
note: I am a home cheesemaker and produce my own dairy products for
personal use only. I do not run a professional or licensed dairy and
I do not sell my cheeses or any other dairy products. If you are looking
for info on cheese classes, where to buy cheese, setting up a small
dairy, etc., please visit The Hometown
Creamery Revival web site.
