    Memorial Day weekend is upon us, the start of a new summer dawns. The past few months have passed by quickly but not uneventfully. In March, Cedar Summit had a bumper crop of calves, and I had a “milk drought” as a result. Since then, I’ve been making more cheese than ever, as demand and new accounts continue to build… Read More »

    It appears our website, alemarcheese.com has been offline for a week or so. I’ll get it back online soon…and in short order, you’ll also be able to buy cheese through the website. I’ve been a lazy blogger. Lots of things to post on from the past month-and-a-half, and I’ll catch you up in the NEAR future. Thanks, and have a great… Read More »

    Starting a few weeks ago, I began a string of Saturday demonstration visits. This photo shows Mari at Lund’s on Ford Parkway. That’s Kathy the cheese specialist in the background, who was kind enough to share her department with us. Of my two daughters, Mari is clearly the more demure, but she really had fun passing out samples and even suggested I… Read More »

    What a cool post. I’ll be picking up a six-pack of Liftbridge Farm Girl this Friday after I’m done sampling at Surdyk’s (I’ll be there from four-to-seven); stop by and say “hi”… A Minnesota-Wisconsin Beer and Cheese Pairing

    This past Friday evening, I had the pleasure of working the Minnesota Grape Growers Association Wine Stroll inBloomington. In all, 28 wineries were represented. It’s heartening to see such amazing growth in an “industry” so similar to artisan cheesemaking; perhaps there will be a Minnesota cheese stroll one day. The night flew by. With an attendance of over 500, I… Read More »

    This Monday I was invited to speak at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in the Twin Cities. Fred Stenborg, one of the instructors, is a friend of the Minar’s. On a visit to Cedar Summit, he asked Dave and Florence if they’d like to speak to his students, and perhaps “that fledgling cheesemaker” could come along too. Alex and Mari… Read More »

    I’m kind of cheating here, because it’s February 4th, though the post date says otherwise. I started an entry the other day, but after revisiting it now, decided to start from scratch. To the untrained eye it will appear I at least posted once during this long, cold, abominable month. This is my 20th winter in Minnesota. I’d like to say… Read More »
