I'm interested in learning what is needed to start a small dairy for cheesemaking purposes. I currently live in a watershed, so would be unable to use my own land. I'll need to search for a place that perhaps housed a cow dairy in a former life (there are a couple of those around here.) What are some of the tools of the trade I should be looking at? Is pasteurization necessary? Has anyone applied for grant money to help with start up costs? My grandfather was a dairy farmer...my mother remembers nothing! Heck, she didn't even know they had to breed the cows to get the milk... :no: TIA!!
