TOTI ALMEDA is the marketing manager of Alaminos Goat Farm in Laguna. He is locked down in his home in Biñan but he does not waste any hour because he is making white cheese out of goat’s milk in their product development kitchen at home.
Here he is sharing the technique in making goat milk cheese developed by his late father, Rene Almeda, who founded Alaminos Goat Farm in 2005. He processes 33 liters of milk per batch which takes three days to finish from pouring the fresh milk to vacuum-packing 100-gram cheese ready for delivery to buyers. The selling price ex-farm of one pack is P150.
Here, we go. The materials like various containers and gadgets used are not included here.
