“A fourth-generation dairy farmer in Stanislaus County, Walter Nicolau started his own enterprise a dozen years ago with one goat. He was 20 years old.
Today he milks about 150 mostly Alpine goats on his Modesto farm and produces 15 cheeses, including several flavored fresh chevres.
Like many novice cheese makers, Nicolau started modestly, with rindless fresh chevre, but has worked up to more challenging recipes.”
