I"ve just ordered some items from New England Cheesemaking Supply Company. Now that the cows are out in the fields here in the Hudson Valley it is time to start making some cheddar cheeses. Cheeses are so much better when the cows are eating grass as opposed to hay. I'm buying my raw milk from Shunpike Dairy out near Millbrook. I also plan on making some Mozzarella and then smoking it with our applewood. Lisa and I this past weekend discovered Mountain Products Smokehouse at the Hudson Valley Marketplace. They sell whole pork bellies and although I haven't quite perfected the process I do feel comfortable enough to ramp up production so we'll be serving our own applewood smoked nitrate free bacon!
