Cheesy Awesomeness at The Creamery in Southern Utah
Cheese is one of life’s great joys. Cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss, and provolone are just a few of the tasty options for cheese. Cheese is so awesome that there is a day to celebrate on January 20th.
I’m a Colby-jack fan and consider macaroni and cheese one of the ultimate comfort foods; it’s up there with a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup.
According to Britannica.com, “Cheese making using milk from cows, and presumably from other animals, began about 1,000 BCE.”
Hundreds of varieties of cheese are made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep, llamas, and yaks.
Also, according to Britannica.com, “Cheese varies according to the selection and treatment of the milk, adjustment of its fat content, heating or pasteurizing, and addition of enzymes.”
Fun fact, cheese making has been of primary economic importance for hundreds of years in the Netherlands, France, Italy, and Switzerland.
You can celebrate National Cheese Day by visiting The Creamery in Beaver.
The Creamery’s website describes its beginning in 1952 when local farmers built the first plant to supply cheese to the Beaver community which it’s still doing. The Creamery is probably most famous for its squeaky cheese.
The Creamery serves and sells products from neighboring family farms in the area and each purchase supports those local family farms. The Creamery has a kitchen, and ice cream shop, and also sells all kinds of dairy products and assorted snacks. There’s also an area at the back where you can see the journey of the food you’ve eaten at the kitchen, ice cream shop, or any of the other dairy products they sell.
