Rogue Creamery Interview

CBH-logo.jpgAnyone who has ever visited Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon will understand what I mean when I say that this interview delivers on the “Rogue Experience”. Owners David Gremmels and Carey Bryant have approached their management of this creamery with such careful consideration to its history that it is hard to believe they were only four years into their journey when we did this interview with David. Rogue has managed to be true to their past while continuing to mesmerize us with new, groundbreaking blue cheeses. Beware listeners, you’re about to get Rogued.

Back on the Cheese Trail

Shoes.jpgYou may have noticed that we have been working hard to crank out the audio pieces from the majority of our farm visits. In addition to listening, editing and posting the voices of cheesemakers from our tour I have donned my shoe covers again and paid visits to a handful of dairies on the west coast in preparation for my upcoming BOOK!
I just inked the deal to create a cheese-driven reference guide to west coast cheeses.  Check out the description posted under the new “Book” tab above. I will keep you posted as I visit creameries in California, Oregon and Washington.

In the meantime we will continue to bring you the voices of cheesmakers across America.

Thank you for your continued support and interest.

The Mozzarella Company Interview

CBH-logo.jpgThere is never a dull moment with Paula Lambert. Spend just a couple minutes with her and you can understand immediately how it is possible that fresh mozzarella went from being virtually unknown to award-winning in a matter of years. The Mozzarella Company is one of our industry’s founders in that she helped create the market and the movement of artisan cheese. Listen closely to her stories- they contain invaluable insight into how to make an artisan cheese business successful.

Pure Luck Dairy Interview

CBH-logo2.jpgSometimes the most we can hope for in times of transition is that we will look back on them and feel proud of how we conducted ourselves while we were going through them. One of the benefits of the audio portion of our project lagging so seriously behind our actual tour is that there is an opportunity to listen to these segments and learn where some of our favorite farmers have come from- to honor their journey in this industry. Dripping Springs, Texas is fortunate to have this family-oriented, farmstead producer in their community. I hope to make it back there soon so I can ask Amelia how many goats they’re milking now…

We were on the radio!

I have been an avid listener of KCRW’s weekly show Good Food for a couple years now. Recently the show’s host, Evan Kleinman, interviewed me about our project. Please take a listen to the segment and keep listening to Good Food. Progress on our podcasts has been slow but we promise we’re still plugging away at it and hope to offer new posts more expediently.

Thank you to everyone who has sent us such positive feedback on the podcasts that are already out there.

Goat Lady Dariy Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoSteve Tate does such a nice job articulating the vision of the farm and dairy that his family runs. We tip our hats to Ginny Tate, Steve’s sister, who mustered the confidence years ago to continue developing and restoring her farm in the face of doubt and ridicule from local residents. Their farm is a beautiful example of the impact one single farm, and family, can have on its surrounding community.

Meadow Creek Dairy Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoHow fortuitous that we would hit this farm in our audio chain a couple weeks after their landmark cheese, GRAYSON, was announced runner up for Best in Show and First Place in the Farmstead Cow’s Milk category at the 2008 American Cheese Society Competition in Chicago. This may sound like a podunky thing but there were over 1,100 cheeses entered in this competition- such high ranks are a big statement.

Helen and Rick Feete have an amazing farm in Southwestern Virginia and they are so engaging and interesting that we seriously considered posting the entire two hour interview but then thought better of it (we wanted to edit out as much of ourselves as possible). I will leave it to them to tell you about their herd of Jersey and Jersey crosses and their philosophy on farming.

Cato Corner Farm Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoCato Corner Farm was the final stop on our 4 month trip but being part of the Northeast we decided (like 3 Corner Field Farm) to include it now to stick to regionalism! Cato Corner is run by Elizabeth McAllister and son Mark Gillman. They have created a serious following for the breadth of cheeses they make from the milk of their small herd. In our new Pacific Northwest location (we moved about three months ago), I hear more people lament the absence of Hooligan- a pudgy and pungent Cato favorite- than just about any other east coast cheese. As we discovered during our visit to their farm, Mark and Elizabeth are firmly committed to their region and are unlikely to consider shipping cheese cross-country seeing that they currently sell out completely between regional farmers’ markets and a handful of specialty cheese stores along the eastern corridor.
