Yep, this is us, a cross-section of life in Massachusetts, from city cheesemakers to mountain-top cheesemakers, from toddlers to college-kids to grandparents who love cheese. From savvy business people who help us survive and thrive to those of us who love to feed great cheese to our friends. Now, to the formal stuff:
