New England cheese in Texas

Just ordered your beginners cheese kit, I looked at a number of other sites and sources, but the reason I ordered from you is that your website is a fun and friendly site - very much so. Love your little cows and graphics. I am a transplanted New Englander (RI) down here to Texas, and since it was a nice, less than 90 day today - Yay - Fall in Texas - I decided to bring a bit more of New England down here. What better way than New England Cheeses??? J I want to learn the basics with your soft cheeses but my true love is the sharpest, most intense cheddars and other pungent cheeses. Anyhow, just wanted to say thanks and look forward to joining your family and hope to be ordering a lot more from you in the future.

happy cheese maker

I love this kit

I have purchased two kits, the Hard Cheese and Mozzarella kit and found them very easy to follow. I have never made cheese before and your directions where easy to follow. Everyone has loved the cheeses and several want to buy your kits. Austin Home Brew is where we get them and they are doing a great job on getting people to try them out. Cheers for a job well done on the kit and finding the right people to sell your items.


Love It!

Got this for Christmas and I am having so much fun experimenting! Good clear instructions for a beginner like me!


Needed a press

I had a heck of a time finding something just the right size that was round to put on top of the cheese tp press it i finally found a tupperware round lid that fit inside the mold. That would be a nice addition to the kit. Otherwise I love it!!!


I have always been to speak.

I went looking online for a cheese making kit and some tools and found my items on Amazon. I like to buy there because I am a Prime member and get free shipping. But, sometimes free shipping means paying a bit more for the product. Someone sent me a Facebook link and that is how I found Cheesemakers. I went back to Amazon, ordered an Induction burner and some utensils and some other items, then came back here and ordered Mesophilic and Thermophilic, Citric Acid and a few other items I know I will need. I have discovered how good homemade cottage cheese is as well as Ricotta. I will probably order the stuff I need for the Mozzarella cheese I want to do next, and also Farmhouse Cheddar. I will make my own pizza dough and use my homemade Mozz on it along with my homemade Italian sausage and almost homemade pizza sauce. Then I will have to explain to the doc why I gained all this weight. It is all fun from here. h
