Someone told me about this, and I think it’s just the coolest thing ever:
Dairy farmers in Sullivan County, N.Y, are being visited by the CheeseMobile, a trailer with a custom-built, state approved dairy plant inside. The 12-by-36-foot unit is complete with boiler, air handler, sinks, coolers and a cheese makeroom containing all the necessary equipment to manufacture, package and age cheese. It is supplied by lines from the milk room that fill the 200-gallon pasteurizer three to four times a week for cheesemaking.
Unfortunately, the website they refer you to (www.thecheesemobile.com) is a lapsed domain.
Anyone seen or know about the CheeseMobile? Where is it now? The most recent sighting was in 2006, in the New York Times.
Calling all interwebbers–help me find the CheeseMobile, so we can rent it! Doug, have you heard of this?
