Local is Relative

I helped to host my friend's baby shower last weekend; my assignment for food was to bring cheese. Oklahoma City is 350 miles from my home base for local goods. But fortunately Oklahoma has some local goods of its own. So my local relative (my mom) directed me to Pure Prairie Creamery cheese from Ada, Oklahoma. I bought a block of Smoky Plains Sunflower Goat Cheddar Cheese and a block of Meadow Garlic Monterey Jack Goat Cheese. Both were delicious and were very well received by the shower guests.

Pure Prairie Creamery has only been around for a year - read about their growth and success here.
