This is our first serious attempt at making a hard cheese rather than simply experimenting with a random amount of curds wrapped in a cheese cloth in the cheese press. The top is a hit rough but otherwise it has come out okay. We have now given it a thin coating of lard and it will mature for a couple of weeks in the fridge.
Meanwhile, we've had our first meeting with environmental health about selling our goats cheese. We want to apply to do so but there will be various hurdles to overcome before we can put our cheese, butter and milk on the market. The meeting however was useful. Whilst I don't expect us to be setting up shop this year, next year is a real possibility.
