WJAC reports low milk prices forced one dairy in Somerset County, Pennsylvania to modify their operation or go in dept.

Carollyn and Paul Van Grouw decided to make cheese to battle the dairy slump. The family didn’t have any experience making cheese and have followed a learning curve since seeking advice from Amish friends in Lancaster County.

Carolyn Van Grouw said the family spent a day learning how to make cheese and now does the whole process by themselves. The Van Grouw’s make specialty cheeses including tomato, basil cheddar and garlic parsley, but they’re actively looking for new recipes.

Cheese sales are limited to the store on the property and local farmers’ markets, but they’ve developed a group of repeat shoppers.

“When they come back, you know something's going right." Carol said.
