Photo: Michael WoolseyMy name is Louella. I'm known as The Milk Maid and I love making cheese. Years ago on a sheep farm in Italy, it dawned on me I could make cheese professionally. I could be a part of the process all the way from grass to dinner plate. Since then, I've continued to fall more in love with this art form. As a cheese teacher and author, I've been able to share this love with others.


On this website are links to cheese classes, home cheesemaking groups, and farm apprenticeships. There are also recipes from Kitchen Creamery, my book on home cheesemaking, for you to try.
