Permalink Penn State's Online Cheese Tracking System Aids Small Cheesemakers

Funded by a grant from the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Penn State has developed an online tool to aid small-scale cheesemakers in achieving product consistency. The Penn State Cheese Tracking System consists of customizable documents and spreadsheets to record, track, and evaluate data for milk composition and quality, the cheese-making process, processing after the initial cheese-making day, cheese chemical composition, and cheese sensory characteristics. Birchrun Hills Farm, Caputo Brothers Creamery, and Hidden Hills Dairy helped to develop the system, which is available online. The system was created using Microsoft Word and Excel to provide templates that can be customized by each cheesemaker based on his or her needs.
