Cheese making is not part of my past but it is part of my heritage. Growing up in South Africa gave me a strong European influence. I grew up on Sweet Dutch Gouda’s, nutty Gruyeres and earthy Camemberts. Unknowingly this has had a profound effect on me and so when I decided to start making raw cow’s milk cheeses on our own farm in Madison Georgia, I knew the flavors I most wanted to achieve. My husband, Russ and I, have 4 children and making cheese that is everyday friendly, wholesome and natural is high on my priority list. I am self-taught and have enjoyed the journey of creativity and self-discovery over the last 4 years. I thrive on pairing my artisanal product with those of others, from chefs to wine and mead makers. Beautiful handmade cheeses start with gorgeous full fat milk from pastured cows. Ours comes from Johnston Dairy here in Morgan county. Not milking my own cows has allowed for a wonderful collaboration with a local dairy man who is passionate about what he does. These cheeses that are lovingly crafted and cared for have both a traditional and a local southern influence.
