Anyone making fresh mozzarella in the Portsmouth, NH area?

Title says it all... Silvery Moon Creamery was selling it at the York, ME farmers market last summer but I have not seen them there this year. Anyone know of anyone else that produces it locally?

  1. Not NH, but a great side trip, they will explain their operation to you. This is a very very interesting concept, large scale production with their own breeding herds, etc. I believe it is owned by a company based in Campania, Italy.

      Every time I see a post about Bufala di Vermont, it brings tears to my eyes. Sadly, they closed their VT farm and moved to Canada. It was too hard financially for them to run their operation in the US. My kids absolutely loved their yogurt. Their farm was beautiful and their cheeses were amazing.

        Solargarlic.............. Wow! I did not know this! Truly a loss for Vt. nd all who found their products in Boston, Whole Foods, etc. The creamery and the animals were a sight to see.

        Do you know if any of their products are imported to U.S.?

          I AGREE! I was reading these posts because I am looking for some fresh mozzarella in Seacoast NH. The capucino yogurt from Bufala di Vermont in Woodstock was to die for. I used to order it by the case at the Porstmouth Health Food store. I still can't find a yogurt I love as much as theirs--but if anyone has any suggetions...

      2. Brookford Farm, which sells raw milk in Rollinsford, was selling mozzarella at the winter farmers markets. Maybe they are still selling it? I know they go to the Exeter farmers markets.

          I thought about Brookford Farm, as I have purchased milk from them before. I didn't see any mention of mozz on their website but perhaps I will give them a call...

        2. I buy the maplewood farms mozzarella at hannaford. It is made in VT, is better than the Silvery Moon Mozzarella, and isn't very expensive. It isn't sold in brine, but it is still very tender and fresh. I have seen it being sold in liquid at some more high end / local type stores and have also had their smoked mozzarella which made a killer pizza (tastes wood fired). Hope that helps. I agree that the woodstock yogurt is the best I have ever had.
