We are the first store in Idaho Falls to carry a complete line of cheese making supplies, as well as locally produced, USDA organic goat's milk. Park Avenue Mercantile is proud to carry products from New England Cheese Company and Mad Millie products. Please visit the store or call and we will gladly help you with your cheese making needs.




 A great way to start is to make your own kefir or yogurt. We have fresh goat milk and culture packs to get you going. Set up your own equipment or purchase our YogaTherm System.


Soft farm cheeses like chevre, fromage blanc, and fromagina are easy and only need a few days til their ready to eat, add some herbs from your garden to personalize the recipe and make it unique to your home. Mozzarella is another great cheese to start with. We have a 30 minute mozzarella kit and with the leftover from the mozzarella cheese you can make your own fresh ricotta.


We carry rennet tablets in ten packs that are perfect for storage in your pantry. We also carry thermophillic and mesophillic cultures to acidify your hard cheeses. Sharp and mild goat lipase for flavor enhancement and liquid rennet in either animal or organic vegetable are available as well.


Another hard to find item is real cheesecloth. We carry three types of cheese cloth and butter muslin for draining yor cheese or yogurt. We also have a large selection of high quality cheese molds from Mad Millie. These are nice plastic molds ranging in price from $2.50 to $12. We also have plans for building your own cheese press or we have premade presses in stock


For aging your cheese we have mold and bacteria cultures as well as red black and yellow cheese wax. If you need to build a cheese cave we also have programmable digital or analog controllers in stock.



To help you navigate your way through cheese making, we also sell books and instructional material and will be offering free basic cheese making classes occasionally throughout the year. Stop into the store or get signed up for our weekly E-Letter that will inform you of upcoming classes
