Boss Mouse Cheese
Native Michigander Sue Kurta is a small batch artisan cheese maker. She is "The Boss" of Boss Mouse Cheese. Honing her cheese making skills in Vermont and Maine, Sue's hobby transformed into her passion. The result became a business, a full-time job, and for the lucky consumer-delicious handcrafted cheese!
Sue makes her cheese on a pastoral historic 1867 Michigan Centennial Farm located in Kingsley, Michigan. Boss Mouse Cheese is made by hand one delectable wheel at a time and offers a variety of aged cheeses as well as smoked butter. Using pasteurized, grass-fed cow's milk, Sue combines traditional cheese making techniques with modern recipes.
Sue is not only an exceptional cheesemaker, but she is also an enthusiastic teacher about all things cheese and even life. Over a mid-afternoon glass of wine, during a break from cheesemaking, her philosophy of success could be applied to all professions. "If you work hard, have a good product and are nice to people, you'll make it," she says. Sage advice from the "Big Cheese" at Boss Mouse Cheese.
