Greenhouses & Buildings; Value-Added Processing; Livestock
“This grant enabled us to do what in one day will be the primary component of the whole operation — raw milk cheese production.” ~ Cynthia Sharpe
Cynthia Sharpe and Dwain Swing are improving their milking room and creamery so that they can produce raw goat-milk cheese. With the grant, they purchased steel stanchions and constructed an aging room.
Cynthia is now able to work full-time on the farm with the extra income from raw milk products, which she sells to individuals, restaurants and small grocers.
