Our friend Anna has informed us that there is a new bit of legislation being introduced that could either stop the sale of raw milk in Indiana or open up sales statewide with better safety standards. (Click here to view the link she shared with us.) I sure hope for the latter!
While there is plenty to be made from store-bought milk, access to raw milk enables the home cheese maker to really perfect the craft without having to own a farm! Speaking of farms, a shout out must go to Copper Creek Farms in Kokomo. We own a herd share through Copper Creek and they provide us with raw goat's milk weekly. From that great raw product we are able t produce our Valencay cheese (pictured here looking spectacular after 6 days in the cave). So, here's to hoping the law bends our direction and opens up further avenues for home cheese makers statewide!
