Any Northern Illinois cheesemakers?
« on: March 20, 2010, 11:44:57 PM »
I am just wondering if there are any members in Northern Illinois. I'm here in the DeKalb area.
I am constantly in awe of the very first people that consumed these things, despite how funky looking and smelling they had become.

If a few batches of chevre count, then hello from La Salle County.

I'm reading and studying and keep hoping to find the time to make more cheeses.

I get Guernsey milk from a farmer near Dixon and goat's milk from a farmer south of Rochelle.

Just getting going with cheese.
