Cheese is a dairy product derived from milk that is produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. It comprises proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. During production, the milk is usually acidified, and adding the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind, the outer layer, or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature.

They are also small, easy to handle, and economical to keep; making them the ideal dairy producer for a little homestead. In the link below, the author describes how she uses her Nigerian does (lady goats) to make her own fresh marinated feta cheese (recipe included).
