Cheese... the new source of money?

Cheese - Is cheese the new cash crop?

I read this in a new report in the papers. Small Scale farmers across the United States are finding new life meeting demand for high-end farmstead cheese. It is a business model that some find far more profitable than selling commodity milk. With the shift in the way cash is made from crops, will more farmers jump on the cheese bandwagon? And due to this, result in a shortage of milk?

That's something new to me ^_^ CHeese is indeed a far more profitable business because one can sell them for a higher profit when it's good cheese.. As compared to milk, no matter how good it is, they can only sell at certain price and never be more.. But cheese is different, just take danish cheese for example, they belong to those slightly quality types, and yet they cost almost $8-$10 or more, for 10 thick slices.. haha.. But selling of milk can never achieve such high profit because their packaging is standard throughout the years..

And the best part of it all? It is processed spoilt milk! And people are forking out good money for this delicious treat! And yeah, milk does have sort of a standard pricing. But cheese, well, depending on how it is processed, how it is made and how it is stored, the values fluctuates. No wonder more and more people are jumping on the bandwagon for cheese. Just hope that this will not affect the supply of milk to the market!
