Cada Dia Cheese
Cada Dia Cheese is a small, family-run dairy farm that began in New Mexico. In 2009, they relocated to Prineville, Oregon and set loose their twenty Jersey cows to graze 60 acres of irrigated pasture. What sets this dairy apart from other, larger operations is that it is completely self-contained. This family of four milks the cows, makes the cheese, and ages it all in one place – right on the farm. Using what is known as a "seasonal" method of cheese making, their herd is milked once a day April through November.
