Dairy products co ntinue to make up a popular and nutritious part of our diet. Per capita consumption of cheese increased 60 percent during the last ten years, and consumption of low-fat fluid milk products more than doubled. Consumers in Cache Valley are fortunate in that they live in the heart of a milk production and manufacturing area. Dairy products are in plentiful supply from local businesses. Consumers can have dairy products delivered to their door, buy them from the supermarket, or purchase direct from local producer/distributors. Many enjoy going to one of the local cheese plants to stock up on their favorite varieties of Swiss, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, flavored combinations, or just plain cheese curd.
