Artisanal Cheeses


Welcome to the Dairy Maiden Artisanal Cheeses Website!

I am an artisanal home cheesemaker in the coastal mountains of Northern California.  I do not sell my cheese. I make it for my family and share with my friends. I do it to have healthier food, and to not be a part of the industrial food chain.  I do it for the sheer fun of it.  For now I am only using cow's milk, but by next Spring I should have goat milk, as well. 

This website supports my hobby and is aimed for you home cheesemakers with advice, recipes, and links, as well as photos.  I am still learning, but when aren't we all?

Come and learn with me! Let's have fun! It's easy!
