Craft Creameries on the Central Coast Thrive Despite US Cheese Surplus

The U.S. is experiencing a cheese surplus of 1.4 billion pounds, according to the USDA, but Central Coast creameries that specialize in artisan cheeses are seeing an increase in sales.

The owner of Central Coast Creamery in Templeton said his business was thriving and the cheese surplus witnessed on the national stage has had no influence on CCC sales.
