When it works properly, Robyn Morton says making mozzarella is so cool.

For Today’s show, we reach into the archives for some stories with Earth Eat’s founding host and producer Annie Corrigan. She takes us to Terre Haute Indiana for some adventures in Dairy.

Robyn Morton teaches butter making and cheese making workshops at The White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at Saint Mary of the Woods. Annie Corrigan sat in on a class where Morton ran into some challenges with milk sourcing and mozzarella-making. She shares a video after the class with answers to what went wrong.

From Harvest Public Media, a story of Benedictine Nuns raising livestock, and Chef Daniel Orr shares a holiday cheese ball recipe.

Chad Bouchard brings us a round-up of some of the food policy news from 2017, and former Earth Eats student reporter Haley Grossman looks at one farmer’s journey towards organic certification.

Most of the content for this episode was originally put together by Annie Corrigan.
