The Small-Scale Cheese Business: The Complete Guide to Running a Successful Farmstead Creamery
The Small-Scale Cheese Business: The Complete Guide to
There has never been a better time to be making and selling great cheese. People worldwide are consuming more high-quality, handmade cheese than ever before. The number of artisan cheesemakers has doubled in recent years, and many of the industry’s newcomers are “farmstead” producers–those who work only with the milk of their own animals.
