This post is a really a smooch. Today marks the last day of the Birchrun Hills Farm Kickstarter campaign to build a cheese cave. Thanks to so many of you, cheesemaker Sue Miller has surpassed her goal, and the pledges are still dropping in! If you have a few shekels to donate yet, hop to it! The campaign ends tomorrow (12/13) at 6 a.m. Go get yourself a reward — you can still buy a brick in the cave, and posters of Sue’s blue — created by artist Mike Geno — are still on offer!
I’m still waiting for someone to NAME THE CAVE!
The success of this project is a testament to the big dairy love that I see throughout the state of Pennsylvania and beyond. When I moved here from Wisconsin almost 10 years ago, I never imagined that the cheese adoration I saw in that state would bubble up these 900 miles away. Your readership, your dairy fervor, your support of artisan cheesemakers like Sue Miller means everything! So, thank you, bubbe! Kiss, kiss, kiss.
If you have no idea what on earth I’m talking about, watch the story about Sue Miller on Fox Philly.
