Ever heard of Farmer's Cheese? If not, it's something you should start making on your homestead!
Two Ingredient Cheese Recipe – Easy Farmer's Cheese
Believe it or not, you can make a simple soft cheese from only two ingredients – and I bet you have both of them in your kitchen already!
This cheese, also known as Farmers Cheese, is great for spreading or cooking with, and can be blended with a variety of herbs to produce a delicious soft cheese for enjoying on crackers. This recipe takes no time at all. Let's get started!
- Large stock pot
- Slotted spoon
- Whole milk – either Vitamin D milk from the store or farm fresh milk
- Vinegar – Apple Cider Vinegar is my favorite, but you could also use White Vinegar
Heat your milk slowly, then, as it begins to froth, add the Apple Cider Vinegar. Use 1/4 cup for every gallon of milk.
Stir thoroughly until the milk begins to curdle.
Make this one next!

Line your colander with cheesecloth and gently ladle the curds in to drain.
Hang your curds to drain for 3-4 hours, depending on preference. Don’t allow them to drain for too long, or they will become dry.
Refrigerate the cheese, it will keep for 7 days in the fridge.
There you have it! Combine your cheese with herbs, spread on crackers, or use in your next meal. Whatever you choose, you now have easy cheese that you made yourself.
