How is cheese made? Tasty’s Made by Hand series goes behind the scenes at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese in New York City to find out. Cheesemaker Liz Stork is making Flagship Cheddar, a process that depends on timing and some heavy lifting.

Then cheese farmer Alan Glustoff gives a tour of 5 Spoke Creamery in Goshen, New York. His Harvest Moon cheese is made orange with annatto, his cheese caves are filled with round, rind-covered chunks that age for a year, and his farm is 100% solar-powered.
