Pacific Northwest Cheese: A History

For years, pioneer farmers made cheese to support themselves, but over time the craft of cheesemaking was supplanted by industrial production. In past several decades, an artisan cheese renaissance has emerged and today over eighty small scale artisans make cheese in the Pacific Northwest. What social and economic forces have fueled this trend toward making (and consuming) artisan and farmstead cheeses? Meet fur trappers from the Hudson's Bay Company, Oregon Trail settlers and 1970s back-to-the-landers in this lively and engaging tale of dairy animals and cheese pioneers.
