    It’s almost over. A year of more highs than lows, 2010 draws to a close and I have just a few moments to reflect. The last few months have been a whirlwind. First, there was a heavy production schedule to meet holiday demand. December has been filled with “demo” visits, with a flurry more before Christmas. Look for us tomorrow… Read More »

    The Mix Magazine just released their November-December issue. I had a great conversation with writer Susan Palmquist; she did a lovely job on this article. Thanks so much to all the Co-op members who support Alemar Cheese! http://www.themix.coop/?q=node/789

    Oh, come on, you’ve got to let me get away with it, just this once. I’ve been a wayward blogger for quite a while now. I’ve meant to post an item any number of times, but something consequential or otherwise seemed to pop in my head and there it went.

    Dinner at Cedar Summit with Tour de Farm was perhaps my favorite meal of 2010. Two different ages of Bent River were served with a house-made cracker and rhubarb preserves. Check out a video of the event (thanks to Cedar Summit Farm for putting it together!)… http://www.cedarsummit.com/tour-de-farm-2010/

    Stephen Haynes emailed me some time ago, mentioned he was a fan, and wanted to know if he could capture a day in the life of a cheesemaker. Besides being a very talented guy, he was a pleasure to get to know. View the photos here.

    When I first hatched the idea to start an artisan cheese business, one of my first visions was the three of us, Alex, Mari and I, sampling and selling our cheese at a farmers market. Yesterday that vision became a reality, and it lived up to all of my wishes and expectations. We served many hundred samples and sold a… Read More »

    Intrepid cheesefolk from Kowalski’s Markets made the trip down from the Cities to tour our plant and soak up the culinary culture ofMankato. After lunch at the famous (or infamous) Wagon Wheel, they stopped in for a few hours to watch the cheesemaking process and pepper me with hundreds of questions. They shot a number of pictures for a small feature in next month’s Kowalski’s Magazine.… Read More »

    Last night, after a full day of deliveries in the Cities and a sample session at Surdyk’s (as always, a great time), I returned back to the “plant” to offload the now empty coolers and tend to the cheese.
