Editor\’s note: Sjostrom and her family are in the process of starting a cheese company based at their family farm in Brooten, Minn. The cheese is not yet available for sale.
You got interested in making cheese at an early age. How did that happen? When I was about 17, I attended the national 4-H Dairy Conference, which included a weeklong trip to Wisconsin. We toured a farmstead cheese operation (Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese). They pipelined the milk under the road, and the cheese was made right there. I thought, \”This is the coolest thing ever! I could do this instead of milking cows.\”
