ha ha , milk maid is the one who supplies the bucket of milk to the cheesemakler every day !!!!!
she takes care of the cows too.
LOL
no we are not making cheese anymore.
we made swiss , similar to appenzeller, it was real good cheese , we used unpasteurized milk .
we made about 150 pounds a week for quite a few months a year for 2 years .
lots of work involved !!!

Hi Nancy and welcome to the board.  Hope to see you around, and maybe we can inspire you to start making cheese again.
