Homemade Frugal Farmer Cheese Recipe

Usually, cheese-making is one profession that requires special equipment and expert skills. Like the act of making fine wine, significant experience and expertise are required to make good cheese. This is something that would require proper planning and would not even be attempted after work one night.

Ingredients and Tools needed:

1 gallon milk — raw or pasteurized, skim or whole (whole will make a much tastier cheese)

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (you can also use white vinegar, white wine vinegar, or lemon juice)

1 Tbsp. salt

Ground herbs of your choice

2 large pots

Cheesecloth or old bandana or pillowcase


Something heavy

Since Neolithic times, cheese making has remained a common tradition in many cultures. However, the farmer’s cheese is one that happens to be the easiest cheese to make in the world. Unfortunately, not many professional cheese makers pay attention to it, as it tends not to look fanciful like gouda and camembert.

It may interest you to know that homemade farmers’ cheese is one that wouldn’t require much planning. It’s so easy to make that you can even become perfect at first attempt. You will surely want to ensure a regular supply in your refrigerator once you try it. \
While some may choose to use buttermilk, it’s good to know that the homemade frugal homestead farmer cheese works really well with Greek yogurt. One good thing about the making process is that you do not necessarily have to be around all the time. You’re free to go on with your life while you allow the cheese to form in the background. It’s a process that takes quite a few days to form.

For the best texture and flavor, it’s best to allow it sit for 18 to 30 hours. Remember, you do not have to be a farmer to make this enjoyable cheese.
