Here is a source for understanding and learning the processes for making your own cheese and potentially opening up an artisan cheese business.

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

I was deeply into this until the wine refrigerator I was using for aging silently died and I lost months of work and then got a corporate job again.  It was fun. 
The best three resources I found for good information and supplies were:
Technical Information: http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/cheese.html#top
Supplies/Rennets/Cultures: http://www.thecheesemaker.com/
Recipes and Instruction: http://www.cheesemaking.com/

The next best thing to raw milk I could find in the area was the un-homogenized milk from Sparkman Farms.  Used to get it at Harry's a lot.  You can still find it at places like Whole Foods.  This stuff packed an amazing yield when used for cheeses.

Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.

Thanks for the info. I've already received an email update from him. Should be interesting to learn more.

That Sparkman milk is amazing. Thank you for reminding me about it. The chocolate milk is to die for, and I don't even usually like sweet things.
