Real American Cheese: A Renaissance
American cheese is more than Kraft singles -- but you already knew that. Celebrate the cheesy renaissance by enjoying curds from Cowgirl Creamery, Thistle Hill Farm, and Bleu Mont Dairy -- or your favorite local cheesemaker!
Today’s artisanal cheese makers are retilling that fallow landscape, so to speak, thereby crafting tasty, unique cheeses and also preserving dairy land and the local agricultural economy. Cheese potentially provides independent dairy farmers significantly more income than liquid milk. Small-scale cheese production can save the farm, as well as traditional dining habits.
