    Did you know that for every pound of cheese produced, there is 8-9 pounds of whey byproduct?!

    For small cheesemakers, disposing of this whey can be a challenge. It’s not a product people want to eat, and it’s too nutrient dense and acidic to go down the drain. At @fireflycheese they team up with local farmers find a good use for that whey: feeding pigs 🐷

    Every week @wildomfarm picks up a tank of whey from the creamery to feed to their pigs. It’s a nutrient dense food that pigs love eating. Happy pigs. Happy planet. Happy bellies. It’s a win-win-win.

    DIY crackers are easy and customizable. If you’ve got 30 minutes and basic ingredients in your kitchen—flour, water, oil, and salt—you can make your own crackers. Once you get the hang of it, your recipe can evolve to include heritage grain flours, flavorful liquids like buttermilk, and any combination of seeds and spices to top with.⁠
