Tag Archives: Dairy Farm


Have an update from (almost) down on the farm. We inspected a small herd (20) of cows. They are so cute! most of them haven’t had babies yet but the little bull will take care of that. I get to see how good I am at teaching a cow to be milked. Yes, city dwellers, they do have to be trained. After they get used to it, they like it.
The financing is still being worked on. That always takes awhile, more rules. I need a place to put those cows!
Some good news for me. Robinsons dairy, the dairy I buy my milk from, is going to deliver it to the kitchen for me. It takes a load off my back, saves gas and time. I’m always short on time.
I have had some issues with the city health Dept. They don’t know how cheese is made so are balky about how I make mine. Ron went to the top, and got us a new inspector that actually understands how cheese is made and so we are free to do it they way it should be done now.
My Great White, The Cheese That Bites Back! is ready to eat. It is hot. I’m anxious to get feed back on it. I already have been given suggestions on how to use it.
Note from mom; ” I just got mine today. It is hot hot hot! Nachos for lunch and Mexican pizza for dinner. Yum”

The new me!

I was lying in bed this morning, around 5:30 am, and was feeling guilty about not writing in my blog more often. I love to write, why am I having so much trouble with this? I thought about all the things I want to say in my blog, and then, even in my brain, I was censoring myself. Why? Well, because someone, whom I love and respect, told me that I had to be careful not to be too personal. I had to be professional and not give too much of my family away in my blog. As I was lying there, I thought about all my favorite bloggers, those bloggers made me feel like I have a window to their lives. I get to see some of the interactions with family members; I get to feel like, if I met this person, I would know them.
I have attempted to leave that portion of blogging, out of my blog. It has stifled me. I have felt like unless something is happening with my cheese life or the dairy life directly, that I had nothing to say.
So, here I am. I am now going to change my style a little. I am going to give you a window to our life. I’m going to let you in on what I’m thinking, what I’m feeling and how scary and exciting this journey is. Because, I think, that this blog should not only be informative, it should feel like you are coming along for the ride. It should be fun and exciting and scary for you, my readers, whether you are a friend, a family member or just someone who is interested.
