Fresh Water Buffalo Mozzarella
We are very excited to introduce the only Fresh Water Buffalo
Mozzarella in Wisconsin, and one of the very few in the country!
The cheese came about as a collaboration between Cedar Grove
Cheese and Wisconsin water buffalo farmer Dubi Ayalon. The
result is a traditional-style Mozzarella di Bufala, with a fresh,
delicate flavor and elastic texture.
The mozzarella cheese is made in wheels and stretched into balls. Wedges from the wheels are drier and good for shredding on pizza, while the balls are soft and good for slicing, for fresh basil-tomato salad, topping on pizza, or plain eating. We are also experimenting with a Water Buffalo Cheddar (this is Wisconsin, after all!)
Quantities are limited
to the amount of milk given by the buffaloes.
Water Buffalo Press
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes what it's like raising and milking a "wild animal" with sharp horns, several tons of weight, and a mind of its own.
There are some great pictures accompanying the article. Read it here and check out their Photo Gallery!
There is an excellent and very entertaining article by Jeanne Carpenter
