The Little Dairy on the Prairie

More about cheese.  Heard an interview on KRTS today with my friends at Marfa Maid Dairy.  http://marfapublicradio.org/programs/talk-at-ten/ 

I've known about these folks for awhile now and I'm planning on taking one of their cheese making classes next spring.  (Ben might end up with some goat buddies next year because I love goat cheese.)  Malinda Beeman and Allan McClane have a kickstarter campaign that is just about over to raise funds for an industrial pasteurizer and a milking machine.  They are just over a thousand bucks shy of their goal with only 48 hours to go.  They make the most excellent cheese I have ever had.  If everyone that reads my blog just gives them $1...they will be over the top.  The power of one.  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1788420964/goat-cheese-for-marfa-texas

Meanwhile, back on the ranch....got two coats of barn red on 9 sheets of siding today.  58,76,36,0,B,0

John, thanks for the head's up. Pledge done.

I figured once you got into cheese making you would add a couple of goats to your menagerie. I've read that Spanish goats are hardy as the longhorns.

Anderson Ranch & a printmaker... and Mr. McClane has a way with the goats & other animals — in with a pledge and going to give their soap a whirl - hope it all flies! I admire their pluck... and I'm sure Allan didn't mean the disparaging remark he made about cows in their video (just in case Ben was withholding his support from his allowance. Carl too.)

If i'm not mistaken, Malinda Beeman was an artist here in Houston....seems i remember that name. many thanks for the link. i'll definitely help out, and can't wait to taste their cheese. Maybe it will come to the Houston Diary Maids one of these days.
