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…

Bittersweet Plantation Dairy Interview

CBH-logo1.jpgCharacter. That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Chef John Folse- followed closely by Dreamer. I’ve never met anyone like him and it was such a pleasure to spend a day with him learning about Cajun and Creole traditions. His passion is palpable and his projects are huge. We really dig this about him. Since we visited, Bittersweet has come out with a few more dairy products- namely yogurt, ice cream, cottage cheese and a cheese called Vache Sante.

Sweet Home Farm Interview

CBH-logo.jpgHonestly we could have almost posted this interview in its entirety because Alyce and Doug are so engaging. I never get tired of listening to them talk about cheesemaking or dairying let alone any of the other million hobbies they do. Listening to them over the past weeks I have been reminded of how absolutely they achieved their mission to create an operation that works for the two of them. They are back down to about a dozen milkers- all Guernseys and Alyce has taken on a big role as the president of the Raw Milk Cheesemakers Association. Listen and enjoy.

Sweet Grass Dairy Interview

CBH-logo.jpgSweet Grass Dairy Interview

Listening to our conversation with Jessica and Jeremy Little is a perfect reminder of just how accessible the people making our food can be. Their honesty and humility still blow me away, not to mention their tenacity. Their operation is an inspiring example of the generation of cheesemakers who are broadening the artisan cheese market with high quality products. The real beauty of what they do (beyond their delicious cheeses) is that they do it with gratitude for the founders of the artisan cheese movement who, in addition to developing the products we’ve enjoyed for the past decades, also developed the market that newcomers get to step into today.

3 Corner Field Farm Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoWe actually visited 3 Corner on our way back into NYC at the end of our trip but felt that they ought to be included in the Northeast push because there are some common themes we find interesting. Stewardship, values, integrity- these are all things that Karen and Paul use as their guiding principles in their day to day operations. Every time they spoke we learned something- we hope you do too.

Westfield Farm Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoBob and Debbie at Westfield Farm are a rare find. They slipped into the artisan cheese business more serendipitously than many. After spending hours talking to them we felt lucky that Bob had followed his instincts right on out to Hubbardston, Massachusettes. Their frankness and candor get right at the heart of what it is to make a product with your own hands and then educate the public about it.

Willow Hill Farm Interview

Cheese By Hand LogoOur next visit is with Willow Smart & Dave Phinney at Willow Hill Farm. They manage a herd of approximately 85 sheep. Willow and Dave produce a number of cheeses (including Autumn Oak, Fernwood and La Fleurie) but also yogurt, lamb and wool. When we visited them, they were in the middle of construction on their new cheesemaking facility. Now that new space is operational.
