Holton Hollow Farm makes cheese on site, with help of Laverne and other gals | North Carolina



“From down in the hollow, they come.

Answering Jeff Holton’s call from the top of the hill, Laverne and Norah lead the rest of the Jersey cows, coming back to the barn for more hay and water.

Maebell and other cows eat hay at Holton Hollow Farm in Iredell County. The cows’ milk is used to make cheese available at the Salisbury Farmers Market.

Ophelia, Lacey Louise, Maebell, PJ (for Peggy Joyce), June and Hickey also are in the group.

“People really, really love that,” Holton says. “They like to know we call them by name and they’ll come to us.”

This small group of Jersey cows are Holton Hollow Farm’s production crew. They provide the raw milk for the artisan farmstead cheese Holton and Debbie Overcash make in a two-room annex to their small barn…”

Salutation Recipes

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.
