This week on Cutting the Curd, Diane is joined in studio by Mary Keehn & Pamela Dressler of Cypress Grove to talk about goat cheese. In search of healthy milk for her children, Mary noticed a neighbor who had goats for brush control. She asked her neighbor if she could buy two of her goats and the neighbor replied with a grin, “Honey, if you can catch ‘em, you can have ‘em.” So a determined Mary went out with grain each day and eventually lured her first two goats: Esmeralda & Hazel. Those two goats turned to four and pretty soon Mary had, well, more. A lot of goats means a lot of milk, and so Mary tried her hand at making cheese.
