Fresno State Dairy Processing


Located in one of the most productive cheese regions in the world Fresno State Dairy Processing is always experimenting with new varieties. Cheese production is very labor-intensive for the unit, so often it is in short supply at the Fresno State Farm Market; when you visit make sure you look for it!

Students are very active in the cheese-making process. The pictures on this page show students draining the whey, salting curds, putting the cheese into molds, and finally our finished product after it has been vacuum packed. 


keep checking back with us on our progress with sheep and goat's milk cheeses.  We hope to have them available soon.  If there are any cheeses you would like us to make please let us know.  We are open to suggestions!
