Recipe for Stuffed Crust Pizza

Ingredients: 1 loaf frozen bread dough (thawed), 1 lb. Baker's String Cheese, 1 jar Ragu pizza sauce, 1 lb. Hansen's Hamburger or Iowa Farm Families ground pork, 1 lb. Cedar Grove Mozzarella Cheese, Other toppings as desired

Cook hamburger ( or meat of choice) and drain grease. Set aside. Grease a 13 inch pizza pan and gently spread dough to evenly cover the pan. Take individual pieces of string cheese and roll the dough at the edge around the cheese. Continue around the perimeter of the pizza. Next, spread the pizza sauce evenly onto the dough. Place hamburger or other toppings on the sauce. Lastly, slice the mozzarella from its longest length, laying the "sheets" of cheese over the toppings. Slices will melt more evenly across the top than shredded cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until crust appears golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!

Cow of the Month
May Cow of the Month Muggs

Muggs is the May cow of the month. She is 9 years old and has given birth to three bulls and three heifers. The heifers' names are MC, Magical and Majesty. Her seventh calf is due in September. Muggs has given us 182,051 pounds of milk in her lifetime, or 364,102 8- oz. "muggs"! Muggs is our oldest cow and acts like a mother to the rest of the herd. She stands outside the milking parlor and watches the other cows go in until she is ready. She's gentle and wonderful to work with. She's also known for being pictured on our web site on the Take a Tour page.

Tips of the Month

How old is your Cheddar Cheese?

Did you know that cheddar cheese has no expiration date? Mild cheddar is 0-3 months old, medium is 3-6 months, sharp is 6-12 months, X sharp is 12-24 months, and after that the years are counted. For example 5 yr, 6 yr, 7 yr, etc.


After four years we discovered where to place the instructions to "Shake" on the label. Everyone checks the date. Well, why not background the word "Shake" behind the date? We have now generated lots of discussion about shaking skim milk. In unhomogenized milk, light, particles tend to rise and heavier particles tend to sink. Even though skim has little to no fat, we still recommend a good shake.
