In addition to cow milk, there is a large selection of sheep and goat milk cheeses for those that prefer the different tastes or have dietary restrictions.

Look in aisle one for vegan cheese alternatives.
Co-op Made Cheeses
Our Cheese Buyer, Connie, previously produced flavored chevres at an operation named Northern Prairie Chevre in Woodward, Iowa. If you have a question, she is sure to know the answer! During the summer months, when raw curd is available, Connie hand-makes the most delicious fresh mozzarella in-house at the Co-op.
