Argyle Cheese Farmer
How do you make the best cheese and yogurt there is? Start with cows fed with forages grown especially for them and who have never seen a synthetic hormone. Raise your 50 cow herd on your own family farm. Make every bit of the cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products yourself in your on-site facility. This is how Marge and Dave Randles make products such buttery Caerphilly, creamy yet sharp Mercy cheese, Sweet Greek Yogurt, and a variety of cheese spreads.
