The closest artisan cheese

I am a fromagophile.

When we move and get a farm there will be live stock.
Chickens, to goats, to cattle.

I would like to learn to make cheese.

Finding this tonight made me smile.
I signed into Local Harvest ( and the first farm to pop up was one of my favorites for local milks, creams and even my favorite cheese! Rosemary's Waltz - the perfect lunch cheese for a salad. I've enclosed the link. whatever that means - but here's stuff from the site.

But on further examination this is the PLACE! It is not only
