The first time I visited Alma Creamery in Alma, Kansas, the only item available for sampling was pepper jack cheese, which I do not care for. The prices seemed a little high at that time, and I decided not to buy high priced cheeses when I didn't know what they tasted like.
But on a later visit, there were several cheeses available for sampling. The prices had remained about the same, but dairy products have gone up other places and Alma Creamery's prices seem more reasonable. Better yet, when I selected the cheeses I wanted, I found that they have uneven cuts of cheese available for a dollar less per pound.
Cheeses available from Alma Creamery include cheddar, colby, pepper jack, Monterey jack, co-jack, curds, and parmesan. My favorites are New York sharp and extra sharp cheddar. Alma Creamery also sells their own milk as well as other Kansas specialty food products from Wyldewood Cellars Winery, Grandma Hoerner's, and jerky & sausage from Prairie Thunder Elk.
Alma Creamery is located 3 miles South of I-70, exit 328, on Highway 99. Tours are available by appointment.
