Good morning!

Our Raw Cheese Savings Event ends 12/22 at 7:00 AM.

Now is the time to stock up on top quality RAW Milk Cheeses at our best prices of the year.

Most grocery store cheeses are made from dead, pasteurized milk.

You deserve the cleanest immunity building foods available.

That's why we offer Organically Grass-fed Raw Milk Cheeses ready to ship nationwide. Raw Cheese helps boost your immunity with the same naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes found in raw milk.

How to store Raw Milk Cheeses long term.

Over 30% of all food is wasted in this country. It's extremely sad.

We want your help to make sure our foods never get wasted. Today I'm focusing on cheese storage, but sometime soon I need to devote an entire email to the food waste subject.

Here are a few guidelines to help you get Volume Savings and still keep our Raw Cheese as fresh as possible. All these storage methods preserve the living probiotics and enzymes found in Raw Milk Cheeses.

1. Unopened in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 months.

2.Opened but inside a resealable bag in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. (If any mold begins to grow, just trim off that edge.)

3. Unopened plus wrapped in dark paper in the refrigerator for 3-12 months. Dark paper is important since long exposure to light will cause light oxidation on the cheese surface.

Note: After six months of dark storage you may notice more of a specialty aged cheese flavor similar to our popular Fromage Affiné.

4. Unopened in the freezer for 3-12 months with no "aging." Freezing will affect the flavor and texture of soft cheeses but hard cheeses like cheddar are usually fine. If this is your first time to freeze our cheddar I recommend you do an 8 oz. block trial before freezing a large 5 lb. block.

5. Shredded Cheese in the freezer 1-6 months. We never use the common Natamycin fungicide preservative in our shredded cheese. That's why we recommend freezing if you won't be using it for a few weeks.

Important Serving Tip: Always eat cheese at room temperature so you get the full benefit of it's unique flavor profile.

For 6 days yet we will offer our best volume prices of the year on Raw Milk Cheeses... Stock up now!

Our cows were "extra happy" this year and they've blessed us with plenty of milk to make lots of Raw Milk Cheeses for you to enjoy! These volume savings options let you save more money on our cheese than ever before... and I'm not promising savings this amazing next year either. :)

This is one way we can thank each of you who chose to support our farm this year.

At the same time, we hope this Cheese Savings Event will make it possible for more people to begin their journey of eating gut-healing, immunity-building foods.

Good morning Family Cow tribe! Something was bothering me. There was a question rolling around in my head. I knew I should dedicate some time to think it through, but... life is busy, so it just kept rolling.
