How We Make the Cheese (rollover pictures)

Step 1

Keep the cows happy.
We do this by many ways:
Good food.
Good pasture.

Step 2

Milk the cows.
We use a state of the art robot.

Step 3

Deliver the milk to the cheese guy.
Here is where the magic happens where they stir it and push it and add flavoring.

Step 4

Package it.
Once we receive the wheels of cheese we cut them into slices and vacuum seal each piece.

How To Store Cheese

A resealable plastic bag will do the job, but it’s not the ideal storage solution for your cheese. The best way to wrap leftovers really depends on the particular type. Whatever the sort of cheese, stash it in the vegetable crisper of the refrigerator, where the temperature is cold and stable. Use a fresh piece of plastic wrap or wax paper to rewrap cheese after each use. The length of time you can keep cheese also differs according to the variety; in general, the harder the cheese, the longer it will last.

Why Choose Ed-Mar Dairy Cheese


The Process

Our milking techniques allow our cows to be milked when THEY want to be milked. Once our milk is turned into cheese it’s aged for 60+ days.

The Product

Pure, simple ingredients. No antibiotics, no artificial hormones. The result is great flavor.

Our Passion

Dairy farming is our passion. We have received numerous awards in our pursuit of creating the best milk possible. Our commitment continues as we offer our fine selection of farmstead cheeses.

Our Past

The Gibson family has received 12 milk quality awards as Dairy Farmers of America Mideast Area members. Eddie Gibson explains their mission, “Both Marcy’s and my own parents instilled in each of us that if something is worth doing, then it’s worth doing right. Therefore producing wholesome, high quality milk is important to us. Our cows live in a clean, comfortable environment and have a better balanced diet than most people. This is the foundation of producing the best milk and cheese.”
