During this episode, I reply to a statement that I often get on my YouTube channel that boils down to; is home cheese making worth it financially and does it contain chemicals and it would be quicker to go to the store and buy it?
I know what you’re thinking, but I replied anyway and broke down the statement into its three parts during this show.

Don’t forget that you can leave a voicemail message that I will answer and feature during the show. Just remember that I cannot answer them straight away, so please don’t expect an instant reply.

You are so VERY correct! It is much less expensive to make your own……anything! Cheese not withstanding. I make much of my own food. I buy the necessary equipment as it is needed and it is a one time purchase. To make what I need is cheaper because I make only what is needed and I make only what will be eaten. NO WASTE! I don’t have lots of plastic, cardboard etec…to throw away because, I dont use very much processed…anything any more. As I learn how to make something, I get the equipment, which is usially the first investment and look for it used if possible or get it for free from someone who is not using theirs and want to be rid of it. Then, I make the item, test it to see if it is to my and my families’s liking, make adjustments if needed and on we go. That item is no longer purchased at the store. I have done this with:
Ground meats of every kind
Bread and all baked goods
And will soon be grinding my own flour
Wool and cotton(growing my own cotton this year) for clothing
2 weaving looms
There was a bad series of snow storms in the north eastern USA where I live. People were scrambling to get to the store to buy food. Me? I just smiled….
