The cheese dames are back with another cheesemaker interview! This time, we sat down with Sean Fitzgerald, cheesemaker at Cherry Grove Farm in Lawrenceville, NJ. Along with head cheesemaker (and another good friend of the podcast) Paul Lawler, art student turned cheesemaker Sean creates an amazing lineup of artisan cheeses using Cherry Grove's grassfed Jersey cow's milk.
The Collective Creamery cheese podcast is your source for dairy news, cheesemaker interviews, and other cheesy chat from the ladies of the Collective Creamery cheese subscription!
It's time for our first tasting episode! Whenever we meet with an amazing cheesemaker, we grill them (lol) about their craft, their philosophy, their challenges, and their dreams — and then we taste some of their amazing cheeses, ideally paired with local libations.
Take a listen to our first pairing ep, in which we dig into wedges from our own Birchrun Hills and Valley Milkhouse, plus 2018 Pennsylvania Farm Show Best in Show cheese St. Malachi from our friends Sam, Matt, and Stacey at The Farm at Doe Run! We pair these goodies with some of our favorite local hard ciders — find them at better bottle shops in southeast PA.
It's the inaugural episode of our podcast all about cheese, cheesemakers and cheesemaking! First, get an introduction to the Collective Creamery team — that's Birchrun Hills farmer-cheesemaker Sue Miller, Valley Milkhouse cheesemaker Stefanie Angstadt, and food writer/cheesemonger Alex Jones.
Then, we go deep with Stef in our first featured cheesemaker interview. Hear all about how she quit her job in finance and combined her passion for cheesemaking with her Pennsylvania Dutch and Belgian roots to open a one-woman creamery and local food landmark just outside Philadelphia.
