Fancy artisanal cheese varieties being handcrafted locally

Whether you crave cheese made from cow, goat or sheep’s milk, you don’t have to look far to find handcrafted, locally made cheese to please your palate.

“This artisanal cheese thing is taking off, and we are going to see a lot more of it,” said food historian and author William Woys Weaver, whose latest book, “As American as Shoofly Pie,” will be available next spring.

Weaver said the resurgence started 10 to 15 years ago, which has led to at least 30 farms in the region making cheese today.

He credits the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, an educational and support system for farmers, for having a lot to do with its regrowth.

  1. I love goat and sheep cheese… and butter… and yoghurt… not so keen on the milk strangely!

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
