What makes Water Buffalo cheeses so delicious?

The Milk!  

The higher protein and butter fat content gives this creamy white delicacy a marvelous texture and flavor

It's Healthier Too!

Water Buffalo milk is higher in Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Vitamins A and C 

while being lower in Sodium and Cholesterol.

  Originally all mozzarella was made with water buffalo milk.  Additionally we make ours as a traditional cultured cheese, which, along with the milk’s creaminess, gives this cheese a mild yet distinct flavor.
