Feta and Chevre Cheesemaking Supplies? [Suburban Detroit]

My dad just bought a family of goats - I'm going to have about gallon of goat milk a day and am looking forward to some cheese.

Where can I find cheesemaking supplies in the area? I would love to make Feta and Chevre.

I'm in Troy, I often work in Wyandotte, the goats are in West Branch.

Thank you

  1. Hopman's on Walton isn't far, and they are a pleasure to do business with, but their cheese making supplies are limited.
    I suspect you'll be best off going mail order.

      Great. I'll check it out tonight on my way up north

      Ive been able to purchase rennet in the pudding section of my locale grocer. I'll check out Hopmans tonight

        Cool. They close at 7:30...or maybe a few minutes early on a friday. ;-)

        Thanks. That site looks really interesting

          I agree, that's where I've bought my supplies from. And you can sign up for a really great e-newsletter as well.

      2. Probably out of the way for you, but Zingerman's in Ann Arbor sells rennet tablets, but only at their store down on Ellsworth at State Street.
