    I have always wanted to learn to make cheese and you make it look easy. Maybe one day I will get my own cow and be able to make my own cheese, butter, ice cream………… There isn’t anyone close to me that sells (donates, because here it is against the law to sell raw milk) fresh raw milk. There are a few farms about 1 and 1 half hours away that sell cow shares, but the milk is just too expensive, as high as $10 a gallon, plus the cost of the cow share and the travel expense to go and get it. Keep up the good work. Isabella is beautiful.

    • Real food should be expensive. That price sounds like the real cost of milk without government subsidies. Having your own cow is no cheeper, it’s probably more expensive. I’d recommend cutting back on expenses in another area and going and getting milk. It’s worth it for the health of you and your family. We’re fixin’ to dry our family milk cow to give her a break before she calves in the spring. I’ll be driving 5 hours round trip to get milk for our family. Just some friendly encouragement, thanks for reading my blog! 🙂

        I would like to say that is encouraging, but I guess that is just the way of the world now. At least I can also visit my mom if I choose to drive an hour and a half one way to get milk. The dairy is near the city where my mom lives in TN. We live on my husbands family farm (been in the family since 1873) in the mountains of NC and have plenty of room for a cow to graze. My husband and I are in our late 50’s and early 60’s and my husband just doesn’t want to fool with milking a cow everyday. I saw you have some type of milking machine. Was it very expensive and where did you purchase it? We have also owned a custom cabinets business for the past 25 years and are looking forward to the day we can retire from that. Our children are grown and it is just me and my husband now, but we both want to live a much more self-sustaining life style. We have always had a big garden in the summer and can or freeze everything we can get our hands on. I love making jams and jellies and homemade yogurt (form store milk). I just wanted to take it to the next level. I enjoy reading your blog and I admire what you are doing. I plan to continue reading about your progress. I wish you the very best of luck.

  2. By the way, my kombucha taste great. I really like the bottles and the fizz! I have another gallon that should be ready Sunday and plan to keep a gallon brewing.

  3. The article is great! The cheeses and pictures look wonderful and it’s always fun to see Isabella.
