Amish Cheese Cooperative Shuts Down

It's reported in the Register today that the award winning Golden Ridge Cheese Cooperative in Cresco, Iowa has ceased operations in the wake of production quality problems and philosophical differences among the members. This will be a disheartening blow to gastronomes everywhere, ans it will mean an end to the cooperative's famous blue cheese-at least for now.

Old Order Amish members founded the cooperative, and since then there have been differences over the use of electricity and other modern processing methods at the plant.

It's expected that a buyer will be found in a short period of time.
